A awesome TRX workout from Chris Fales.
Give this a go, and let me know how you do with it!
Pullup – is usually considered as palms being pronated ( this means that the palms are facing away from your face as you grab the bar.
Chinup – is usually considered as palms being supinated ( this means that the palms are facing your face as you grab the bar.
Try this workout:
10 pullups widegrip
10 chinups widegrip
10 pullups closegrip
10 chinups closegrip
6 Heavy – Good Morning Bends with a barbell.
Do that for 3-4 rounds as fast as you can.
Finish with a some ab exercises.
50 double knee tucks
50 weighted crunches
25 barbell rollouts
50 mountain climbers with rotation
50 weighted russian twists
We wanted to test our endurance and strength. We also wanted to see how hard it was to do this mini WOD.
So here it is:
160 lbs Total – ( 45lbs + 10 lbs + 2.5 lbs weights on each side of Olympic Bar)
For squats, place barbell behind head.
Keep the kick speed up.
This is a continuous exercise all the way to the end.
5 kicks each leg on pads
10 kicks each leg on pads
15 kicks each leg on pads
20 kicks each leg on pads
Finished. Try this mini WOD out, and this should be a good test to see where you stand with your endurance training and mental toughness.
A new class will be starting at Maki Perfomance in the month of April.
This class will take place every Sunday at 9:10 AM for 50 minutes. Classes are located at 150-11960 Hammersmith Way, Richmond BC.
This class is primarily for people saying “I want to sweat 1 ” because they did not get their cardio in the week before, or because they were that couch potato on Saturday and needs some exercise, or maybe because you just love cardio. For any means this class will be fun and intense.
So as the name goes “Come Sweat 1”.
Coming soon to a Maki Performance Gym near you!
So what is a complex? It is a set of exercises performed right after another either for time or for amount of repetitions.
Our complex performed last night included 6 exercises back to back, each exercise was 6 reps, for a total of 36 reps.
We used an Olympic barbell and 1 – 45 lb bumper plates on each side.
The exercises included:
2. Push Press
3. Bent Over Row
5. High Pull
6. Reverse Lunges
Do about 3 – 4 sets. Focus on quality, but try to keep the time low as well.
