I know what you're thinking, "Uh-oh, Cuckoo's been contemplating again!" But hear me out, hopefully you all are in a playful mood.
I've been thinking for awhile that back in the olden days before gyms and Cybex machines, people got their exercise doing manual labor. Since I live in an agricultural area, that manual labor came from farming.
I've wanted to come up with a workout of sorts that duplicated the work of our ancestors, thus the Farm Boy Workout. I also thought it might be fun for anyone to chip in with their own ideas. Basically things you could do around the house/yard if you couldn't get to the gym.
(Note: This thread was partially inspired by this thread - http://www.muscleandstrength.com/for...tml#post475600 )
So, a few things to start off:
1. Lifting/Stacking/Lugging 50# sacks of gravel from one end of the yard to the other.
2. Of course, a farmer's carry, maybe with a large flat rock?
3. The sledgehammer swinging mentioned in the above thread.
Any other ideas?
