Torshavn Training 1 2018

I love to do all kinds of exercises everywhere I go. I guess I am a trainingfreak. I am obsessed with that fitness feeling in my body.

Now I have arrived to my third home. Torshavn in The Faroe Islands. Everytime I come here I just want to climb these lovely mountains close to the North Atlantic Sea.

Join me on my training this calm cold morning in Torshavn.

Fresh cold air this morning around 10 degrees. Perfect for a challenging run and crossfit.

In the video below you can see some very good exercises for your back.

When you run on these very slippery and rough rocks you really have to concentrate all the time. One mistake you can be very sure of an unpleasant injury.

Here it goes up and down all the time. The perfect interval training.

Remember your push-ups. Perfect full body exercise and the view is fantastic.

This was a quite demanding crossfit training on my first day in The Faroe Islands. Hope you enjoyed watching and got a little inspired to go for it yourself where ever you are in the world.

Multi Exercise Series 2

The Headstand-Swing

This serie is inspired by yoga too. It is the headstand (in my version) combined with leg and armswing and a waving push-up. Hope you like it and will enjoy your training with it. It is good as a morning starter. Decide how many times you will do it. I do it 5 times each morning.

If you don´t enjoy training when you do it, then you appreciate life more when you are done. I love both.

You are responsible for your health, so do good things for yourself.

I hope I can inspire you with this ordinary day in my life. This is what I do every morning except point 6 – 8. You have to have variaty in your training to train different kind of things in your body and also break patterns that will easily accur in each and every ones lives.

  1. A liter of water with fresh squeezhed lemon and ginger.
  2. 5 min. Morning meditation
  3. 5 min. stretch series
  4. A handfull of almonds, a handfull of hazelnuts, a handfull of walnuts, 2 fresh dates, a banana, a half avocado, two cups of fresh filtered coffee.
  5. 20 min. of mental and outfit preparation

Sorry about the headless guy ;o). But it is not headless meditation. Focus on deep breathing and the same time feeling Mother Earth below you.

Stretching is very good for your body in the morning.

The last stretching exercise “pick apples” is in the right place ;o)

The next video is warm up with the sandbag. You must have a sandbag. It is just perfect training.

Now I am ready for the 1 km warm up before I begin the very hard training of WiseMovement Circle Crossfit series as you can see below.

After each of these stations I run 1 km with different kinds of run. Backwards, sidewards with armswing and crossing legs, high speed, low speed and up and down stairs. Then I am ready to do the circle crossfit again. This I will do four times this day.

After this it is time for the muscle stretching and 1 km slow run home for the breakfast. Well earned…..don´t you think ;o).

I wish you the best training. See you soon. More healthy :o).

The Burpees-Halasana

Multi exercises are good because you activate and train all different kinds of muscles in your body. This is a healthy dynamic way of doing a great thing for your body.

In this exercise I have combined the traditional Burpees with the yoga Halasana.

Now I am going to show you how. You may be a little stiff in your body like me, better or worse, but by the time you will be more flexible, if you work on that too.

And remember the grass is not greener on the otherside ;o). It is your choice, how green your grass is. I am working on that, you can see.

SeKiFi SlagInstruktion 1-2

Når du har øvet dig i, hvordan din tommeltot skal være placeret under dine knyttede fingre og de to store knoer, du skal ramme med, så er du klar til instruktionsvideo 2.

Nu skal du jo bare have noget at slå på ;o). Dertil vil jeg klart anbefale en sandsæk, og så skal du naturligvis også have nogle sandsækhandsker. At bokse på en sandsæk er noget af det bedste træning, du kan få. Når du har lært at slå rigtigt, vil du opdage at det faktisk er ret sjovt og god træning. Ved at bokse, træner du faktisk størstedelen af kroppen, når du giver den gas med sandsækken. Ved at bevæge dig rundt og slå samtidig får du både god kredsløbs- og styrketræning. Hvis du ikke vil investere i en sandsæk, må du jo nøjes med at afreagere på dem hver torsdag kl. 19.00 til 20.30 hos mig. Vi starter torsdag d. 23. august. Husk at sende mig en mail på brianjacobsen@rocketmail.com om hvem du er, og hvad du har dyrket før.

Instruktionsvideo 3 er på vej.

God sommer.

My Sun Salutation

This is the way I started my day:

The Beach is good for all kinds of exercises and training. I love to go there every day for yoga, running, mountainbiking, volley, swimming, diving and fishing. Not everything each day, but many of them. So yes the summertime is definitely the best season of the year. This time I am going to show you some yoga from this morning. It is my own version of the Indian Sun Salutation.

Don´t think traditional when it comes to training. Do something new everytime. Try to break your training pattern. Challenge yourself in new ways.

I know you can do it. You should too…..
