8 Ways to Bond With Your Dog…and get rid of belly fat

Written By: admin - Oct• 03•11

This post shows you how to get rid of belly fat while you walk your dog. The curcuit is 20-30 minutes and requires only your body weight, no equipment – perfect to combine with a dog walk so you both get your exercise.

Have you ever seen a 17 year old Shar Pei? Well my pup Chico turns 17, the equivalent of 112 in human years, on October 20, 2011. According to the American Shar Pei Magazine, the oldest is 18 so we’re getting close to breaking records and making history.

Anyway, he’s as stoic and tough as ever but walks pretty slow these days. You can image what our 20 – 30 minute daily walks are like; we cover less than a block. So I turned a weakness into a strength and with a little help from Craig Ballantyne’s Crazy 8 Bodyweight Curcuit, we increased the man dog bonding and decreased the body fat.

Here’s what we do to get rid of belly fat:

First, find a safe leash free area. Then go through this circuit of 8 bonding exercises back to back with no rest, recover for one minute and then repeat for 3 total circuits.

    1 Entertain the dog – 60 Full Jumping Jacks done with a nice fast pace. You are beginning by elevating your heart rate and improving your shoulder mobility.

    2 See things from his perspective – Do 20 Spiderman Pushups – these are regular push-ups but as you go down your knee comes up to your elbow. tougher than expected when done with an elevated heart rate from the jumping jacks.

    3 Now both perspectives (yours then his) – 20 Walking Lunges in a straight line to get a nice stretch in the hip flexor region.

    4 Try Walking in His Shoes – Do 20 Spiderman Climbs: Starting in the push-up position bring your foot up beside your hand and then back – ten per side. Keeping your abs braced and your hips low is key to this core and flexibility builder.

    5 Lean on a Tree – Wall Squat for 60 seconds. Lean against a tree in the low position of a squat, thigh’s perpendicular to the ground. Hands hang loose, no help from resting them on your legs. This static hold really works your quads.

    6 Visit a Hydrant – 60 second Plank hold: Really tough the second and third time!

    7 Catch a Bird – 5 Burpees: After a full pushup explode as high as you can into the sky.

    8 Chase a Cat – 50 High Knees, 25 each side.

I guarantee that at the end of this walk your dog will be entertained and you will be exhausted. There is no better way to bond with your dog and get rid of belly fat.
