Here is your time crunched, holiday workout. You can hit several of these all week through this hectic time of year.
Crank this simple formula that I LOVE to use:
Beginner / Intermediates can crank a 10, 8, 6, 4, 2 rep scheme
Advanced Lifters go Prison Style: 10, 9, 8, 7, 6.....1
The set up for exercises and program design are simple.
I prefer to do a full body lift coupled with a pull such as the video shown below.
Or.... Upper Body Lift + Lower Body Lift.
One workout your upper body lift can be a pushing movement such as a military press or bench press, next time make it a pulling movement such as a hand over hand sled pull, rope climbs or pull ups.
Another favorite which I'll be doing through the week is a Bodyweight Bodybuilding Couplet for 10 minutes x max rounds:
A) HandStand Push Ups x submax reps
B) Squat Jumps alternate with Lunge Jumps x 10 reos
These density type workouts were inspired to me via Coach Reeve, who used to perform these brutal couplets for time with a goal set for total sets when he was a college wrestler. Today, he uses them to train Gridiron Gladiators at The D1 Level!
Check out this Holiday Density Workout, using keg clean & press + Mixed grip pull ups.....
