1Daf Workout Challenge: Day 1 Psych Up Edition

Pro Tip: Exercise is meant to be fun. To remind yourself of that fact make sure you wear something colourful like neon spandex, a tutu, a wrestling suit, or that pink shirt Harry wore that one time at that school gym (Why was he there? We’ll never know…) 

WORKOUT SOUNDTRACK: 

16 songs, 55 mins of non-stop Psych Up material! Put this on shuffle and don’t stop moving until you reach the end of the playlist. 

Recommended Location: 

Either in a large space outside (like a park, running track, sports field, or your backyard) or your local gym. You don’t need any equipment for this workout. 

1DAF WORKOUT: 

Part 1: Warm Up aka PSYCH THE FUCK UP FUCK YEAH ALRIGHT WHO’S WITH ME?!!?  (10 mins) 

  • Walk at a steady pace for the duration Ready To Run. If you’re at the gym do this on a treadmill. 
  • Increase your speed to a powerwalk for the duration of Stockholm Sydnrome. You should be puffing a bit by the end of this bit. Or at the very least blushing because this song is about a nympho 
  • Do 10 side lunges, 10 forward lunges, and 10 backward lunges alternating legs for the duration of I Should Have Kissed You. Don’t rush here. Go slowly and make sure your knee touches the ground on your forward and backwards lunges. Aim to increase your depth as you go along. 

Part 2: SPRINT TIME 

Sprint Track: Does He Know  

Does He Know has exactly 30 seconds of verse followed by 30 seconds of chorus. Lucky for us, this makes it the perfect sprint track. You will sprint for a total of 1:30 per track but only 30 seconds at a time. It’s not that much. You can do it. 

Outside: Find a long stretch of road/grass/track and prepare to sprint for 30 seconds. 
Gym: Make sure your settings are right on the treadmill before you begin. For this activity you will be genuinely sprinting. Not jogging. Not running. SPRINTING. If you are confused about settings please ask a staff member at the gym for assistance.   

  1. Press Play 
  2. Do absolutely nothing during the verses. Just stand there looking fly as fuck. If you’re on the treadmill put your feet on the side and wink at the good looking guy doing bicep curls over by the mirror. 
  3. When the chorus hits: SPRINT FOR YOUR FUCKING LIFE. Imagine you are being chased by a lion. Imagine Niall is being chased by a lion and you are going to catch that fucking oversized lounge rat before it touches a single precious hair on his precious perfect head.

Follow with: 

  • 20 crunches
  • 10 jumping squats (like Harry, you must channel the soul of a frog, squatting as low as possible and then jumping for the clouds) 

1 minute rest. 

Repeat three times

2nd Set Sprint Track: C’mon C’mon 

3rd Set Sprint Track: Alive 

At this point I know what you’re all thinking: 

And to that I say: 

PART 3: Strength Motherfucker 

  • 10 jumping lunges in One Direction (heh), turn around and do 10 back 
  • 20 Mountain Climbers 
  • 10 push ups (on your knees if you find resting on your feet too difficult)

Repeat set 3 times 

Part 4: Liam Approved Abtastic Suffering Awesomeness 

  • 30 second plank 
  • 15 leg lowers 
  • 30 second bicycle 
  • 30 second Banana Impression (and reverse) 


  • 1 Minute rest 

Repeat 3 times.

Here is the second of our Halloween workouts designed by our expert partners to help you get fit enough to survive the zombie apocalypse.

This is the Evasion and Escape Workout designed for Tribesports by The Hybrid Athlete. This workout will work your cardio and speed with some HIIT and bodyweight strength training combos that are sure to get your heart rate up and give you a fighting chance when you are being chased by the zombie hordes.

After sprinting two miles naked, and then running all the way back to my apartment, only to get a call from my father telling me that my mother has decided to disown me and my grandmother has seen my dick, and then telling me he hopes I rot in a holding cell– didn’t happen, credit to sprinting two miles, I think last night was a success.

This workout was pretty tough but fun. I had only had one day of rest from weights since my pull workout so my hamstrings and back were still feeling pretty sore. My hands were feeling inflexible and tender so I decided to go with back squats instead of front ones. Lunges got pretty funky towards the end of the sets. Didn’t improve with bench press and had to drop the weight or risk being flattened. Didn’t improve with military press so lowered the weight for the remaining sets unlike the last push workout I did. This meant I could actually get 5 reps out. Managed to hit myself in the chin with one of them - lol.

After all this leg destruction I got on my bike in a huge gear (50/14) and managed to hold 30mph for just over 3 minutes down a long stretch of flat road which gave me 4 Strava KOMs. My legs really started to suffer in the last minute or so but I kept on pushing. I also signed up for a track race which is this Saturday so I won’t be working out again until after that. There’s a sprint competition which should be fun. I’m excited to see where I’m at in terms of racing bikes right now. I feel fast, but it doesn’t mean I am compared to other people. Hoping the race doesn’t get called off due to rain like the last one!

5 reps x 3 sets of:

Back squats: 90kg
Lunges: 75kg
Bench press: 1 set of 65kg, 2 sets of 62.5kg
Military press: 1 set of 40kg, 2 sets of 37.5kg

The Frieza Workout (Inspired by Frieza’s Forms)

Until “Dragon Ball Z: Fukkatsu no F” comes out, we’ve never seen Frieza train. Not one time. He sits in his chair, being ridiculously powerful, barking out orders. He never had a reason to push himself to a higher level, because there was no one to challenge him and, by the time there was, it was too late to make himself any stronger, because he was dead.

This workout is not Frieza’s training during “Fukkatsu no F,” but is merely a workout inspired by his Forms.  When the movie comes out, I’m looking forward to making a workout for his on-screen training, too. Until then, though, this will have to hold us over.

This workout is meant to be completed in stages. Stop whenever you feel like you need to.

Notes:

  • First Form is mimicking Frieza holding the death ball above his head and the times we see him floating in the air looking out at Namek from his ship.
  • Second Form is based on the muscular body Frieza possesses; particularly his shoulders and arms.
  • Third Form is based on the sheer mass of Frieza’s body. He has a wide stance for balance and the massive armor-like structures across his shoulders and back.
  • Fourth Form is showcasing Frieza’s speed and athletic ability, as he dodges all of his opponents’ attacks, leading up to his fight with Goku.
  • 50% Power is based on the complete domination that Frieza demonstrated against non-Super Saiyan Goku, followed by being dominated by Super Saiyan Goku and then trying to blow up the planet.  You’ll feel beat down and “5 Minutes” will feel just as long as it did when we waited for Namek to blow up.
  • 100% Power is based on the last parts of Goku and Frieza’s fight on Namek. The first exercise emulates where Frieza was pushing Goku through the ground at high speed and the second is a nod to Frieza jumping up and splitting himself in half with his own attack, which I though was funny. :D
  • Total time for this workout, including rest periods, is 49 Minutes. Do your best, but please stop if you feel like you must. This workout is going to take you to hell and back if you aren’t prepared for it.
  • Alternatively, you could also do any of these workouts separately from the whole.
  • Each exercise that is listed for single limbs, like the KB snatch or the split squats is that many reps on each side, not that many reps total.
  • If you don’t have a sled, you can push a wheelbarrow or pull a tire with some weights on it, or even pull against a friend who is holding onto the other side of the rope.
  • Please be careful on the Third Form. That one can get pretty nasty. If you have to scale the weights down, then so be it, but don’t feel bad if your body says no or you run out of time in the middle of the second or third exercise. 1.5-2x bodyweight is rough for a lot of people.

Let me know if you have any questions! Until next time, good luck and train hard!

This is my first attempt at making a video on sprint training and editing it myself. It was a bit of fun, hope you like it.
