Summer Strength and W.O.W. Challenge 8/25/14

Hey gang, hope you’re having a fantastic day!

Quick little gym circuit video today that we busted out before football camps started up.

Dan is a defensive lineman.  Strong as an ox and moves very well at 235 lbs.

Check it out…

I know not everyone has access to that equipment.  If you’re around Greene County, hit me up and we’ll get the tires and sled out.

For those looking to get after it anywhere else, here’s a little equipment-free program that’ll get you in near football shape in 6 weeks.

You’ll need a timer or clock that’s easily readable.  That’s it.

Always stretch/warm up thoroughly.

Week 1

On 3 non-consecutive days: 5 Burpees on the minute for 9 minutes, 12 minutes, 15 minutes (that’s day 1, 2, 3 respectively)

Week 2

On 3 non-consecutive days: 6 Burpees on the minutes for 9 minutes, 12 minutes, 15 minutes

Week 3

On 3 non-consecutive days: 7 burpees on the minute for 9 minutes, 12 minutes, 15 minutes

Week 4

4 days (don’t perform more than 2 consecutive days without rest): 6 Burpees on the minute for 9 minutes, 12 minutes, 10 minutes, 13 minutes

Week 5

4 days: 6 Burpees on the minute for 10 minutes, 13 minutes, 11 minutes, 14 minutes

Week 6

4 days: 7 Burpees on the minute for 10 minutes, 13 minutes, 11 minutes, 14 minutes

Burpees suck.  But they burn tons of oxygen and calories.

I believe breaking them up on the minute makes them a little more tolerable and spices up the traditional interval workout.

These can be stand along mini-cardio sessions, or thrown in after a strength session to finish you off.

Comes down to hard work 🙂
