What's your whitetail workout?

Discussion in 'Ohio Whitetail Deer Hunting' started by cowboyruggee, Jan 5, 2016.

  1. I train in the gym relentlessly so I can be in peak physical condition so that when the opportunity arises, I'm ready. I also train because it helps me reduce sweating and causing human odor.
    I train at a 24 hr gym. Starting Monday is a 1/2 mile incline treadmill. And a chest and arms workout. Anywhere from 75-100 reps pertaining to each muscle group.

    Tues is all legs. 1 mile slight incline jog. Followed by 1 hour or squats, single leg dumbbell hamstring bends. Heavy weighted calf raises. Lunges, quad/ham extensions etc. followed by 1/2 mile incline walk.

    Wednesday is back and shoulders. Start w 1/2 mile incline walk. Mid weight military press. Heavy rows. Deadlifts increasing weight by 90lbs each set. Sets of 10-15. Lat pulls 150lb 10 reps/3 sets. Lots of shoulders and upper back lifts to increase bow draw strength. Follow up with a 1 mile jog.
    Rest day then back at it. Each day I do about 6-9 sets of various ab exercises. Each lift is a little different. Some days heavy some days light weight. But when the time comes I'm ready.!!!
    What's your routine?
     
  2. I drink beer and tell stories. If you see me at the gym, I'll be the guy in the parking lot eating a burger.
     

  3. I start mine on Fridays at 4:00 with 12oz curls for about 4hrs then rest on Sat. for about 12hrs take Sunday off and go back to work on Monday. Under that regime when the time comes I'm fully rested and ready for whatever comes my way!!!! Anybody else????

  6. I started preparing 12 years ago when I had my first boy. He's ready to take over the reigns on everything from cutting wood to dragging deer. I'm in charge of beer drinking and chair sitting. Every job needs a foreman.
     
  7. Its called an atv or deer cart! I will say after killing a decent body buck 1 mile in wnf Marietta unit and basically having to drag it myself I knew I needed to get into shape. My solution to that was not going back there anymore. Lol.

  8. Im with Giles on this...

    I follow the deer's lead, bucks eat like crazy before the season to put on weight for to get through the rut. I do the same, take an extra slice of pizza, order a bigger steak, go XL on the value meal. :evil:

    Then I can skip lunch, and get off earlier to get in the stand. Plus, I stay warmer.:coolgleam

  9. Good post man ! I worked my butt off last year to go from around 315 to 265. Bench, squat , DL, OHP and HITT cardio. Rinse and repeat.

    My primary reason was to get in shape for river kayak fishing which I do a lot of. It helped my deer hunting tremendously as well. The better physical shape we are in the more we can enjoy ourselves in the out doors !

    OP sounds like your routine is pretty intense... What's your max lifts in the Big3?
     
  10. Cut firewood in the summertime work a 40 hour a week mechanic job crawling up on semi trucks under them and getting up off the floor keeps me somewhat limber I get up in the morning drink coffee go sit on the throne for awhile every morning and get ready for my day

  11. I tried that. Then at 20 he moved away for school and met a gal and never returned. To this day I rib him about all the work I put in getting him ready and then he bails on me.
     
  12. that's precisely the reason I had a 2nd boy 3 years ago. :D Great results start with great planning. :D
     
  13. I'm a believer. I work out pretty often, (run and HIIT) mostly for just overall health. But being in shape has great benefits in the outdoors.
     
  14. I average 10.8 miles a day and 37 stories. I don't know what average people do a day and I'm sure I could make time to go, but....
