Test your brawn in martial arts classes. Try out your best Bruce Lee kung fu moves in a karate or judo class.
2. Fire away at a shooting range
See how you fare in a zombie apocalypse scenario. With a gun in tow, fire some shots at a target shooting complex.
Find out if you have the right amount of spunk to survive zombie mania.
3. Tough it out in your own war games
Have an awesome day getting dirty and tough with the guys.
Outsmart your pals in a paintball challenge. Or, try role-playing as gutsy soldiers and rebels in a classic war games activity.
4. Get out into the woods and be outdoorsy
Imagine getting a break from the hustle and bustle and enjoying the outdoors with your best buds. Head out to the lake and go fishing.
If you are not the type to wade in the waters, (responsibly) hunt for wild boar or deer. Cook your best catch while camping in the woods.
5. Have a manly cook-off
Try to unleash your inner Iron Chef. Dust off your grill and show off your savory barbecue sauce recipes.
You and your friends can also cook using a bonfire. Here’s some tips on how to build a fire pit.
6. Engage in a little healthy competition
Nothing bonds the boys like a testosterone-filled activity, such as a basketball game or a hockey match. A little healthy competition pumps up the adrenaline with the losers treating the winners to a few rounds.

If you and your friends are motorcycle enthusiasts, take a ride to enjoy the cool rush of the wind in your face. With pit stops at local bars and joints, have your fill of cold beer while looking cool on your choppers.
You can choose your most favorite course. Or, opt to be adventurous cruising on a more exhilarating route.
8. Cheer for your favorite teams in a sports event
If you do not want to sweat, let your favorite athletes do the hard work. Attend a sports event like a basketball game, hockey match, or a wrestling duel.
A tiny bet on the side won’t hurt just to amp up the fun. Be prepared with your best (friendly) trash talk for when the game heats up!
9. Visit your favorite joint and take a trip down memory lane
If you are not up for a lot of noise but still want to bond with your pals, just enjoy a chill night and guzzle down some beers.
Share your crazy childhood antics and teen anecdotes growing up. Laugh non-stop at each other’s silliness.
These lazy nights also let everyone’s guard down enough that you might discover new stuff about your bros. The secrets you will learn might surprise or shock you.
10. Be a kid again via a video game marathon
You will always be a child at heart, no matter how old you are. Video games will absolutely bring out the competitive and spirited kid in you.
Enjoy playing your most favorite video games coupled with the most popular games today. Check if you still have it going in the gamer department.
11. Treat your tummy to a mean feast of food and beer
It is a fact that the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. But why rely on women signing up for cooking and baking classes just to gratify your appetite?
It’s 2019, and time for you to be responsible for your own food quest. Satisfy your cravings and go all out with foodies!
Devour all the meat and beer that you can eat. See here the various kinds of beer you can experiment with when you are out at the bar with your bros.
12. Complete a DIY project
Show off your MacGyver and Mr. Home Improvement skills by doing a project at home with your pals as your accomplices. Fix your old car in the garage and get your creative juices flowing with the repainting work.
You can also install new shelves or cabinets for your trophies. Conduct a full makeover with some parts of your house like the kitchen or your man cave.

How about exploring your skills in the garden?
Discover if you have that infamous green thumb. Gardening might help you begin a new business venture, too, with the trendiness of plants, herbs, and succulents as gifts or giveaways.

Take down some notes while watching your buddies ace their game in the ladies department. Find out who still has the charm to impress the girls.
15. Pull out all the stops with firecrackers
Nothing is more exciting than playing with fire—something you couldn’t do when you were a kid. But this time, as a (mostly) responsible adult, you’re free to indulge in a firecracker or two.
A bit of danger won’t hurt, but proceed with caution (and make sure you’re not doing anything illegal).
