The Battlestar Galactica (“33″)

You’re being pursued by Cylons and must jump every 33 minutes . Begin with a jump – 10 jump squats or long jumps. Next, set your timer for 33 minutes and complete the following circuit as many times as possible before time is up. Weight should be challenging but not too heavy for multiple circuits. Reduce if necessary. When 33 minutes have passed, finish with a final jump – 10 more jump squats or long jumps.

Adama’s steadiness – 30-second wall sit

Caprica Six’s legs – lunges, 15/leg

Apollo’s (kinetic) chain of command – 30-second plank

Tigh’s blackouts – 10 floor dives

Gaius Baltar’s nervous fidgeting – 20 explosive calf raises

Anders’s Pyramid Championship – 10 pyramid (triceps) pushups

Good luck, Galactica crew. Happy hunting for Earth.


Part inner nerd and part aspiring jock. Mostly inner nerd, though.
