I'm in Thailand for 10 days.
For most people this means boozy night at the beach bar, lie-ins and too much rice.
Well, after a low carb lobster meal last night, the organiser of this 'fitness mastermind' event in Phuket, Dax Moy, revealed a nasty surprise.
At 6.30 am this morning we were all up and before we could dive into the usual lucious fresh fruit breakfast, we hit the beach.
What followed was neither nice nor pretty but highly effective!
Dax used to serve in the marines so had something special up his sleeve for us.
Today dawned the Magic Hundred beach workout, which went as follows.
(Before starting, mark out a 100m strip of soft, sandy beach)
100m swim back
100m push ups (push ups for distance so you have to push up and forward every rep)
100m walking lunge back
100m jump squat
100m seal crawl back
100m sprint in water back
For the seal crawl, lie on the sand and drag yourself 100m using your legs as little as possible. Imagine you have no use of your legs and you'll get it!
For the roll, perform forward rolls for the distance.
We had intended to add a 100m rock throw but couldn't find any suitable rocks or logs!
The swims were an absolute killer because it was virtually impossible to get any momentum due to constantly breaking 4-5ft waves!
So if you ever tell me you couldn't train on holiday because you couldn't get to a gym, you will get some stick!
This was fun in a sick kind of way and as you can see there was absolutely no equipment needed, yet ruined us!
Full body exercises, power endurance, strength, core strength in the waves, upper body, lower body, mental toughness, grind, but most importantly out in the wonders of nature.
Think outside the box guys, there's so much out there to inspire your fitness goals.
I'll have the video soon!
