Training for the Unexpected

How do you put a million random workouts in the palm of your hand?  You buy these little beauties from PTDICE.com.

How do you put a million random workouts in the palm of your hand? You buy these little beauties from PTDICE.com. These are high quality, laser etched, 16mm plastic dice made in the U.S.A.

Are you a martial artist looking to train for the unexpected?

An adventure racer, mud runner, or obstacle course enthusiast who wants to be ready for whatever a course throws your way?

A fitness or martial arts instructor who is out of ideas for calisthenics routines, or just wants an extra resource?

Or maybe you work out at home and you’re looking for some variety?

If so, check out these beauties.

Roll the black dice to arrive at the workout type, number of exercises, and number of sets.  Use the colored dice to arrive at your list of exercises.  Then make a quick calculation using your SSM (“Single Set Max”) to figure your reps per set, and you’re ready to sweat.  The instructions are short and sweet and easily committed to memory.  Use these dice a few times and you won’t even need the instructions.

Roll.  Sweat.  Repeat.

In time you’ll find other ways to use them.  They are ripe for experimentation, a virtual playground for geeks who love exercise (like me).

  1. Hi Robert. Just wondering if your father was an archeologist or something related to that?

      Nope, he was not an archaeologist I’m afraid. I take it you knew/know an archaeolovist with the same name…?
