The Agricultural Run

August 11, 2009

You may have heard of the exercise “the farmers walk”; this is essentially a type of “walk” whilst carrying two farmers. This kind of behaviour may have been perfectly fine in the middle ages, but today, not only are farmers more difficult to find, but our bodies require much more workforce than in previous years. Since we have evolved to eat cereals and use farm machinery, we need to workout in the same manner as our crops are processed in order to fully express our genes.

That’s why I have developed the ‘Agricultural run’ Here’s what to do:

  1. Set a treadmill to maximum speed
  2. Get 2 very heavy dumbbells – around 35kg is ideal
  3. JUMP on the treadmill and start running, hard

This process simulates being a stalk of maize being swayed by the wind, before finally being whisked up by a combine harvester and crushed. It’s very important to undergo the same process as your food in order to achieve symbiosis between nutrition and workouts. Studies have shown that if you don’t understand your food, you can NEVER fully utilise that food.

Feel free to experiment with other workouts which replicate food processing, after all if corn can do it, why can’t we?
