Hi Mike, I was wondering if you could ask the bloggers what they are doing to get in shape for the upcoming hunting season. Everyone has their own workout plan, and I would be interested to know what those are. At this point mine is: walk 3 miles 5 times a week, and sit-ups and push-ups each morning. In September I plan to add a small pack with weight in it for my walks. BTW, I loved your Maine TV show, that is one tough place to get a deer.—Thanks, Mike M.
Ok, who’s working out? If you’re not you should start today, you’ll feel better and hunt better.
I’ll start. My pre-season (and all-year except when I’m traveling and filming and hunting) routine: Walk dog daily (7 miles a week)…jog, with sprint intervals, for 3 miles 3 days a week…moderate weight-training and core (planks) 3 days a week, with emphasis on chest and arms. This isn’t as tough or as time-consuming as it sounds; I don’t kill myself but I do try to push myself for 30- 40 minutes every day.
