Tips to Stay in Shape for Fall Hunts by Nikki Boxler

Fall and fall hunting will be here before we know it. It's best to start planning for it now, and planning to get your body and its conditioning in shape. Start today - be the finely-tuned hunter you want to be tomorrow.

Here are a few basic (and simple – yes!) exercises I use and would recommend to you as a great pace to start. I’ll show more in this video blog, but here is a rundown on them. Come along on this video and learn more!

Farmer Walks (no…you don’t have to be a farmer to do this…ha)

The Farmers Walk gives you a lot of bang for your buck as it puts a lot of different muscles to work. This exercise will help to improve your grip and core strength in addition to building the upper back muscles.
 
Walking Lunges
 
This functional, multi-joint exercise is a great way to work your glutes, quads, hamstrings, and improve your core strength. Also, lunges help to improve and maintain mobility and flexibility of your hips.
 
Pallof Press. 
 
The Pallof Press is a great way to train your core to act as a stabilizer.

Nikki Boxler grew up on a large dairy farm in Western New York and continues to reside there today. This setting has shaped her love of the outdoors and is how she developed a passion which drives her to spend as much time hunting and fishing as possible. For her, hunting is not about the kill, it is about the experience, the memories, the moments and having fun. Her most memorable adventures take place not only in the woods but also around the grill. Nikki thoroughly enjoys her role as co-host of Winchester Life.
