If you’ve never watched “Zombieland” you are MISSING OUT! If you knew anything about me you’d understand my appreciation for a humorous creature feature. Blood, gore, action, humor, romance, epic one-liners, and a RULE BOOK ON HOW TO SURVIVE… I gotta be honest, I was close to picking “Shaun of the Dead” but the “Survival Rules” won me over.
Now…I’m not here to type a movie review. I’m writing this blog to give you a quick overview of what to expect when you do the Movie Theme Workout: “Zombieland”.
The entire workout is made up of “Rules for Surviving Zombieland”.
Rule #1: Cardio
Gotta have good cardio to survive! Run from cone to cone spaced about 15 yards apart and perform 10 jumping jacks at each cone. Continue for 5 minutes as a base warm-up.
Rule #18: Limber up
You don’t want to pull anything. Perform 5 minutes of a dynamic warm-up before engaging in any strenuous activity.
Rule #8: Get a KICKASS partner
Pretty self-explanatory… Pick a partner and make sure they are KICKASS!
Rule #4: Seatbelts
Wear’em! Switch-off wearing a tow strap and running 20yds “resist and release” drills with your KICKASS partner for 10 minutes.
Rule #32: Enjoy the little things
Rest…briefly. It’s a WORKOUT not a HANGOUT. Take a knee, grab a sip of water, and lets get back to it!
Rule #3: Beware of bathrooms
The park bathrooms are next to the benches, tables, slides, and swing sets. Perform the following within 5 minutes:
10 Touchdown Squat Jumps
10 Feet-Up Push-Ups
10 Seated Knee Tucks
Rule #32: Enjoy the little things (again, a quick breather)
Rule #20: It’s a marathon, not a sprint…unless it’s a sprint, then sprint!
Be ready to sprint at ALL times. Practice your “get-up and go” for 50yds on :30 for 12 reps.
Rule #32: Enjoy the little things…
ZOMBIE KILL OF THE WEEK!! To survive your enemy you need to know your enemy…
10yds Zombie Komodo Crawl
10yds Side Sit (left)
10yds Side Sit (right)
10yds Zombie Crawl
10yds Seated Reverse Slide
Rule #2: Double tap
Haha! Do the “Zombie Kill of the Week” AGAIN and make sure you’re DEAD, dead.
Rule #32: … … (sheesh)
Rule #5: No attachment
No getting too close to your partner. Time to break up and be on your own. Every man (or woman) for themself.
Rule #22: When in doubt, know your way out
Plan your escape route before entering the dangerous zombie infected area… Play “Zombie Tag” with all the other survivors until you have nothing left.
Rule #17: Don’t Be a hero
Congratulations! You have survived Zombieland, saved the day, and got the girl (or guy).
If you haven’t seen the move yet…WATCH IT! “But i don’t like scary movies…” It’s not a scary movie. Watch it. appreciate it. Learn the rules. Come out this week and LIVE IT, it’ll be fun!
