Train Like a Dwarf

Here we are, nearing the end of January with many of those New Year Resolutions fading fast. If your resolution was to go to the gym more often, then maybe we can give you a boost with a little look at The Hobbit dwarves’ daily workout.

Steven McMichael, fight choreographer for The Hobbit, planned the routine to get the dwarves fit for the challenges of filming. You can read our interview with Steven here.

The Fili, Kili, Oin, Gloin, Dwalin, Balin, Bifur, Bofur, Bombur, Dori, Nori, Ori and Thorin Oakenshield Workout of the Day

A WOD 1For a more challenging anaerobic workout, try: 45-15s or 60-15s
For another difficult twist, perform each station’s motion 12 times, then 11, 10, on down to 2 times, and back up to 12 before moving to the next station
