POTENTIAL NEW PLACE

Perhaps??

65th workout of the year, 6/20/2011.

Music: Creed. T-Shirt: B. Merrells World Beer Tour (shhh…ya can’t just buy this shirt…ya gotta earn it). Check out the beer menu.

So what do you do after a workout that has nothing but burpees?

How about a workout with nothing but balls!!

We’ve done something similar in the past. But it’s been awhile.

So bring on the balls!!

  • 10 Balls of various weights were used.
  • One cycle of each exercise.

Ball Slams On Knees 3 Slams

Ball Slams On Toes 3 Slams

Jumping Ball Slams 3 Slams

Twists and Jump Ball Slams 3 Slams

Sprawl Knee to Ball Ball Slams 3 Slams

Push Up On Ball Ball Slams 3 Push Ups Each Ball, 3 Slams

Cobra Push Up Ball Slams 3 Push Ups, 1 Slam Each Ball

Ball Overhead Squats/Ball Slams 10 Squats 1 Slam Each Ball

Doesn’t sound like much but it was one hellava workout!

This is the workout for 11-17-2010.

The last workout was pretty tough. Lots of deep breathing and sweat across the board.

So I had to figure out how to raise the bar again for this workout. I think I did.

There was more “silence” between exercises today. A sure sign that the workout was a success!

Music and T-shirt: Metallica!

Warm Up: Agility ladder drills. As I mentioned before there are probably hundreds of different drills. We did  a few. Each drill was done twice.

Next: Time for the meat of the workout today: Monster Walks!

These were done with gold tband around the ankles and a weight plate. We did a short version of this a few weeks ago. We ramped it up a bit with this workout by adding more distance.

The red plates are 45lb, the blue are 35lb, the yellow are 25lb and the green are 10lb.

  1. Monster Walk standing up straight with a plate overhead. 50 Yards.
  2. Monster Walk with overhead press with plate. 50 Yards.
  3. Monster Walk Hopping forward with plate. 50 yards.
  4. Monster Walk Hopping backward with plat 50 yards.

Next: Prisoner squats with Knee to Elbow. This hits the core, thighs and butt.

For the first set we did 20 reps on both sides. That was followed by 2 other sets. One for 15 reps on both sides and the other 10 reps on both sides.

Core/Abs: Its that time again!

  1. Crunches 50 reps
  2. Crunches with one leg up 25 reps to each side
  3. Unilateral Bridges done driving the heel into the ground. 25 each side.
  4. Side Planks Reps 25 on each side.
  5. Seated Leg Raises 50 reps

This is yesterdays’ workout (2/3/2010). I thought the last workout was tough…this one was still kicking my butt about 3 hours later! Which is a good thing!

I didn’t really know what to call this post. It was definitely a conditioning workout…definitely “ultimate”…and definitely harder than the 300 one we did the other day. So I wrapped all that into the title. Works for me!

Music by Eric Clapton. T-Shirt: Walmart, 5.00 Halloween Glow-in-the-dark.

First: Regular Inchworms for 25 yards. Right after that Inchworms with a Jump for 25 yards. Just trying to make the Inchworms tougher.

Second: Wall Sit Leg Raises. Never did these before. If they were too easy we wouldn’t do them again…they weren’t. The stationary leg really gets hit in the quad as you would expect however the hams and glutes got hit as well. The moving leg got a little hip flexor and abs but not too bad. 25 reps each leg.

Third: “Sumo” Squat with Knee to Elbow. Didn’t think this was going to be so bad. We only did one set of 20 on each side and could really feel it. Next time we’ll do more sets.

Fourth: Long Lunge to a High Kick. Worked on the quads/glutes, dynamic flexibility and of course balance! 10 reps on each side…next time we’ll do more!

Fifth: High Kicks for 50 yards. Not real tough from a cardio standpoint but does work on dynamic flexibility.

Sixth: “Tabata” Style Squats. Essentially extrapolated from some research by a guy from Japan named Tabata. We did squats for maximum amount of reps for 20 seconds followed by a 10 seconds “break”. This was repeated 8 times…3 min 50 second total time…very tough if you do it as described!

Seventh: Using a medicine ball you jump up as high as you can (personally I can’t get very high!) then jump out as far as you can, sprawl, pushup on the medicine ball and repeat. We did 50 yards. Now this was tough after only 25 yards…which is why we did another 25!

Eighth: An exercise circuit of 9 exercises, 30 seconds for Max reps. 2 cycles. The only rest is going from one exercise to the other. Exercises consisted of: Lying pullups, Ab pullins on slide board, cross touch pushups, Ham pull ins with exercise ball, side laterals on Vertimax, Triceps extensions with gold tband, DB rows, bottom burpees, step drill. Exhausting!

Core: Finally! Unilateral bridge/leg raise 25 each side, side plank hip raises 25 each side, “V” crunch 25, side crunch legs up 25 each side, reverse crunch/hip ups 25!

Very exhausting and in a good way!
