Naruto Ninja Movement 2.0- Workout #5

This workout is a little different. It's called 5,000lbs. The basic idea of the workout is you have a group of objects, either the same thing or different things, that weigh a total of 5,000lbs (you could have a bunch of sandbags, a pile of bricks, weight plates from the gym, or even a stack of lumber) and you move it from one place to another 50 Yards away. When all of the objects have been moved, the workout is over. 

Some finer points to consider:
  • You have to carry everything. You cannot drag it or use any tools to move things.
  • You may use any type of carry at any point during the workout: Front Carry, Shoulder Carry, Fireman's Carry, Farmer's Carry, etc.
  • If you do not have 5,000 lbs worth of stuff, you can complete the workout by doing multiple "sets." For instance, after you've moved 1,000 lbs worth of stuff from one place to another, move it back. That equals 2,000lbs. Move it again and that is 3,000 lbs.  I think you get where I'm going with this. 
  • The faster you complete the workout, the better, so you'll have to decide whether you want to carry less, move faster, and make more trips OR carry more, move slower, and make fewer trips. The workout is about the amount of work completed. You get it done on your own time.

I know I've been doing a bunch of these workouts recently, but I'll get back on track shortly with some different stuff for you guys!
