Is 4 Better Than 2?

Is four limbed aerobics the way?
Using 4 limbs in stead of just 2.

May the Schwartz be with you.
  1. Add Heavy Hands to your box step ups and treadmill sessions.
  2. Begin with a lower body workout and end with an upper body workout. For example, ruck your course, then come home and do a battle rope session.
  3. Spend more time on rowers, assault bikes, versa climbers and cross country skiing apparatus. Use four limbs.
  4. Do walking lunges or skip rope and alternate with the heavy bag.
  5. Do a minute of Kettlebell Swings followed by a minute of Double Ski Poles. Thank me later.
  6. If you have access to a long sets of steps, Pump & Run up the steps with fairly heavy, Heavy Hands. Walking down the steps is your rest interval.
  7. For the road or mountain biker, the Battle Ropes should be ready to go when you get home. They will balance the workload and enhance recovery of your legs.
  8. The Double Ski Pole strongly stimulates the posterior and anterior chains of the body. Combining the Slide Board from speed skating into this program can benefit the lateral musculature.
  9. If you practice Filipino Martial Arts, you can use a slightly heavier stick(s) with impeccable form while practicing power hits through all angles of attack. Slowly adding footwork makes this an incredible workout.
  10. Adopt Nordic Walking. It’s using ski poles while walking to distribute the workload over 4 limbs.
