Anyone know good sources that tell about exercises the Gurus or puratan Sikhs did?

I am aware of horse riding and shaster vidya, hunting and wrestling

But were there any others? Any guides written on martial arts, weight-lifting or cardiovascular exercises

 

Thanks

Those wooden things are called ‘Persian Clubs’ which are used to strengthen hand grip and shoulders.  Dangal Wrestlers (Pehlwans) still use them as part of their daily training.  Bodyweight momentum squats and ‘Hindu pushups‘ as they are known are the core exercises used to develop strength.  Also pushing and pulling trees is also an old exercise which was used to develop strength.  The key to getting strong was always to do massive quantities of repetitions with these exercises, have daily massages and consume lots of nuts, milk and gheeoh!

Seeing the last of the older generation at work growing up, I don't think people can really appreciate just how much those guys grafted.....

Not necessarily, pollution, food enhancement and quality of food has affected our bodies. Old apne didn’t necessarily have to work allday. They Did walk everywhere or atmost bike but its not like we cant do as much
