Well i was surfing the web over the weekend and i stumbled across some crazy ass newest exercise craze workouts that people actually really do.
I couldn’t believe how many are out there. After i had a little laugh i thought id put together some of my favourites so you could have a laugh too.
Let me know what you think.
Hula Hoop Workouts
Hula hoops for working out? Absolutely! Massive in the 70′s or hang on was it the 60′s? Anyway a recent study by the ACE (American Council of Exercise) found that 30 minutes of hula hooping was just as intense a workout as a bootcamp class or cardio kickboxing.
Can you believe that? When was the last time you tried hula hooping?
If you got kids, you may even have one stashed away somewhere at the back of the shed, if not you can find them at Toy World or the discount shops like the Reject Shop or Sam’s Warehouse for a couple of bucks.
Next time you see a personal trainer taking a bootcamp in the local park sneak over and give them the hula hoop hot tip.
Ok so everyone has a frisbee, I think I’ve got 3! Also found in toy and discount shops for only a few bucks. The best models weigh 181 grams or above. Anything lighter kind of does its own thing when up in the air.
The exercise benefits to this newest craze is that your always moving. Usually either jogging or sprinting so its a form of HIIT training.
If your throwing the frisbee at the beach then thats an entire different workout and much harder than on grass or pavement.
You may have heard of Ultimate Frisbee? Thats a team sport of 7 and its played like touch footy, so its non-contact and the aim of the game is to get over the try line with frisbee in hand. There’s also frisbee soccer and frisbee golf and its played exactly like you imagine.
More of a bit of fun than workout but its better than sitting on your backside wishing you where more active.
Mov/Nat – UK Monkey Emulation
This newest exercise craze, developed by Erwan Le Corre has people getting back to their crazy primal roots. The Mov/Nat is all about crawling, running, jumping, climbing, hanging and dangling. This crazy ass workout is actually growing in popularity in the Emerald Isles. Maybe they don’t have TV or Internet there?
Imagination is key with this workout. Have you heard of Barstarzz? Its a group of extremely fit and unusually strong people that workout out in parks all around the U.S.A.
Anyway just thought of it as its similar but in my opinion much cooler than Mov/Nat.
The whole philosophy of this workout is to enjoy movement for movement’s sake, while not being so OCD about getting killer abs, calorie counting and beach bodies.
Check out a few of my favourite bodyweight outdoor workouts.
Well this may be the most bizarre newest exercise craze just yet. Apparently laughing not only burns calories but tightens ab muscles, and we already new that laughing reduces stress.
This newest exercise craze is being spear-headed by a laughter professional Dal Kular………..yep i said a laughter professional based in Sheffield, UK. Dal is actually gaining some welcome admirers in her “workout” sessions, from such places as The University of Sheffield.
The university invites her to bring her sessions to the students for stress relief, light exercise, and to develop a sense of balance.
Participants claim that it will change your life. Dal Kular says “Laugh on the toilet, or laugh in the shower. Just laugh anywhere you want. It’s life changing”
Well i s’pose you can’t knock ‘em until you try them can you?
Believe it or not iv found a few that makes the newest exercise craze list and In part 2 ill cover some of the more expensive crazy workouts out there.
To laughing on the toilet,
