The Guru's Exercise Regime


Episode 99 mentions how Guru Hargobind Sahib would for countless reps swing weighted clubs, an exercise utilized by wrestlers and warriors of old to develop shoulder, back and arm strength. The use of weighted clubs helps to develop functional strength facilitating hand to hand and armed combat.⁣

ਮੁੰਗਰੀ ਗਹਿ ਭਾਰੀ ਕੋ ਫੇਰਹਿਂ । ਅਨਿਕ ਵਾਰਿ ਬਾਹਨਿ ਤੇ ਪ੍ਰੇਰਹਿਂ ।⁣

Holding heavy weighted clubs Guru Hargobind swung them for countless reps with his arms. ⁣

Gurpratap Suraj Prakash (1843), author: the Great Poet Santokh Singh⁣
