“Skyrim legend tells of a hero known as the Dragonborn, a warrior with the body of a mortal and soul of a dragon, whose destiny it is to destroy the evil dragon Alduin.”
―The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
For today’s workout I’ll be doing the Dragonborn workout. The story of the Last Dragonborn has a rich history, and it’s a story I’ve loved since I first played Elder Scrolls online -which was a huge addiction for me at the time.
For those not interested in the deep story of the Dragonborn, I’ll keep it short and sweet: The Last Dragonborn is a warrior who has the power to consume the soul of a dragon after he slays it, making him a human with the soul of a dragon… pretty cool, right? Thing is… in order to be a badass dragon warrior, you have to be physically fit -to the point where you can carry heavy shields and weapons while chasing a dragon down and slaying it. While having lighter inventory helps in endurance, you still need the strength to lift a heavy sword, staff, axe, war hammer, and you must be able to run while wearing heavy armor and a helm. So how does the Dragonborn stay so fit, by completing the workout below! Give it a try and let me know how you like it! 🙂
