Uphill Running Tips
  • Shorten your stride
  • Keep your head up rather than focusing on your feet
  • Swing your arms up and down (not side to side)
  • Lean slightly into the hill
  • Don’t compensate form.  Don’t over-rotate your trunk in an effort to get momentum, you’re just wasting energy!!
  • Maintain a consistent effort up the hill…don’t trail off just before the crest.  Keep your mind on the goal and push through

HEY WOW THANK YOU FOR 10K FOLLOWERS GUYS and double thank you for all your kind words and support always!!! 

For One Punch Fans

So, I’ve been trying to get my mind off of things and I decided to do some number crunching.

So Saitama said this was his training regiment:

  1. 100 Push-ups
  2. 100 Sit-ups
  3. 100 Squats
  4. Run 10k (6.2 Miles)

He did this every day for three years. So lets crunch dem numbers shall we.

So let’s calculate how many days thats in three years. That’s easy. Assuming one of those years isn’t a leap year. 

365 x 3 = 1095 days.

We can then take this an apply them to his regiment.

Over Three Years on consecutive days, this total amount of each part of his regiment.

  1. 109,500 Push-ups
  2. 109,500 Sit-ups
  3. 109,500 Squats
  4. 6,789 miles.

While the Push-ups, Sit-ups, and Squats are an impressive feat, the real scary thing is the amount of miles he ran. Now for those who like running (either in track, cross country, etc. etc.) 6.2 miles might not be much. But doing that every day, even when your body refused to move?

Let’s put that amount in perspective:

I took two well known cities on the planet and asked google (yes google because its actually a neat little tool) the distance between the two. 

Here are the results:

He basically, over the span of three years, ran the distance between New York, NY to Tokyo, Japan and then some. And please note that the run was the last thing on his regiment. Jesus fucking Christ.
