Neck Pain & Tension Relief Workout
Neck pain is one of the most common complaints of our digitally-enhanced society. Time spent in front of screens or looking at our devices, insufficient focus on neck muscles during our workouts and too little time to spend on this muscle group in general contribute to frequent complaints. The Neck Pain and Tension Relief workout remedies all those problems. It can be performed as a warm-up, before exercise or as a total stress reliever at the end of the day.

Super Mario Workout
Only an Italian plumber from NYC could be tasked with saving damsels in distress and sorting out all sorts of sticky situations that go a little above and beyond your average plumbing job. Now you too can practice some of Super Mario's favourite skills by developing some of the physical strength and agility required to do it. Not too sure it will help you get a plumbing job in NYC but should Boom Boom, Pom Pom, Fawful or Kammy Koopa ever cross paths with you, they'll be sorry. 

Instructions: Repeat each move with no rest in between until the set is done, rest up to 2 minutes and repeat the whole set again 3, 5 or 7 times depending on your fitness level.

What it works: Quads, calves, lower abs, shoulders, chest, triceps, lower back, cardiovascular system, aerobic capacity (VO2 Max), hips. 

Tips: Knifehand strikes and overhead punches end at a centre point, an imaginary line going through your center, splitting you exactly in half. 

Make it better: Use jump squats to go as high as you can each time, really pushing off using your quads and working for height. 

Make it harder:  Perform all front snap kicks balancing on the ball of the foot of your standing leg. That way you can get some hip movement in, increasing the power of the kick and you can, also challenge your balance and rotational strength. 

Body types this can work for: This is an exercise that can work for every body type. Endomorphs may find the high impact exercises a little challenging but they're not outside their range of capabilities. 

Perfect for: Anyone ready to defeat King Boo and apply themselves to saving Princess Peach. This is also a great workout for those looking for power, agility, cardiovascular benefits and even a little aerobic exercise. (No wonder New York City plumbers are so fit).

Pillow Fight Workout
You know when you use to have pillow fights when you were a kid because you thought they were cool and your parents used to step in and break them up and tell you they weren't? Well, guess what? You were right and your parents were wrong. A good ol' fashioned pillow fight is the coolest way we know to get the blood flowing through your body, work some great muscle groups and, even, work up some sweat. This workout should be taken straight to your parents with an "I told you so" note. One small not of caution, should you get over-enthusiastic you may want to rethink the decor of the room you're exercising in. We are speaking from experience when we say that vases and small porcelain figurines do not enjoy a natural lifespan with this exercise routine in action around them. 

Instructions: Repeat each move with no rest in between until the set is done, rest up to 2 minutes and repeat the whole set again 5 times.

What it works: Shoulders, quads, front hip flexors, calves, laterals abs, core. 

Tips: Get a heavy pillow and you got yourself a hardcore workout.

Make it better: Find a partner and practise together (and maybe afterwards you can duel it out). 

Make it harder:  When performing pillow strikes keep arms parallel and straight. This increases the load on your arms, wrists and fingers giving you a much more comprehensive workout. 

Body types this can work for: We're tempted to say here "juvenile", but really it will work for anyone, anywhere, almost (see our note of caution regarding vases and figurines). 

Perfect for: Those days when you just want to act out a little and the responsible adult in you is shaking a finger and nodding with sagacity.

10,000 Punches 30-Day Challenge
Each day consists of a total number of reps. You split the total into manageable sets but there is a twist - before every set you have to do 5 push-ups. It doesn't matter how many sets you split the total into if you break and rest it counts as a full set and before your next go you have to do 5 push-ups. Every 4th day is an easy day with only 100 punches in total for the day. Each punch counts as a rep.

Movie Night Workout
You know that feeling when all you want to do is sit at home watching something on TV? The world outside has ceased to exist but that doesn't mean that your drive for fitness needs to go bye-bye. Quite the opposite in fact. Here's a chance to turn that sofa into your playground making the night-in movie your fitness aid. If you want to have your cake and eat it, this is the perfect way to start. So indulge, watch that film and chill at home and don't forget to make your reps count. 

What it works: Quads, front hip flexors, lower abs, adductors, shoulders.

Tips: This is a great tendon-strengthening, low-key workout. If you really want to test yourself cut down the rest time between sets to 30 seconds and get ready to feel some serious burn in your tendons.

Make it better: You're sitting down so there is not a lot of movement going on when you punch. Take your punches to an entirely new level by tensing your biceps and clenching your fists tightly as you punch. This will increase the resistance load on the muscles making your arms work extra hard. 

Make it harder: When you're performing leg swings straighten your leg out by locking the knee and keeping it locked and tensing the thigh as hard as you can. After a few seconds it will begin to cramp but do not relax. Maintain the tension forcing the quads to tighten up until you finish all your leg swings. This will help increase the strength in your thighs even though you're sitting down.  

Body Types this can work for: There are no restriction on body type when it comes to movie night.

Perfect for: Film critics, television journalists, movie buffs and those who feel that exercise need not be sacrificed just because it happens to be movie night.  


Happy Friday!

Challenge me: Push-Ups
How to play: if you want to challenge me, plus one and give me work to do, if you want to be challenged, re-share or post on your stream and let others decide what your plans for this weekend will be.

Why play: the gamification of fitness is what makes it fun, the X-factor adds suspense and making it a public commitment that helps with accountability. Fitness is often about doing something, anything and just keep on doing it consistently. Every rep adds up and makes a difference - energy invested is never wasted.

Super Saiyan Workout - Video
Some workouts are meant to be completely off this world. A super Saiyan state can only be reached when you go beyond your current limits, so this one’s designed to help you get there faster. Remember that in true Goku fashion the secret to super strength is simply to train more and train harder. So power up.
