Yesterday I woke up with a crazy urge to hit the gym.
I wanted to crush myself.
These type of days rarely happen.
So when they do I highly suggest you jump at the opportunity.
I thought to myself…
What type of workout do I want to do?
One that might make me puke.
(Side note: I do not train to puke very often)
So I got excited…
My good friend and owner of the popular website Strength Villain sent me over a copy of his new book.
So I downloaded it…
And picked out 2 workouts that looked fun.
Then I headed to the gym.
I figured I would take the day off from my usual GQ Body routine and just crush these 2 workouts.
The workouts I chose:
#1) Barbell Hang power clean & push press complex.
I used 135lbs and did 5 sets of 5.
This was really tough and had my heart rate through the roof.
The time frame of this?
Only took like 10 minutes.
I then rested a bit and tackled workout #2
#2) Bar Pushup x 5, clean and press x 2
For this one I did max sets in 5 minutes with 135lbs again on the bar.
(Bar Pushup is when you do pushups off the loaded barbell u are using for the clean and presses.
Both of these workouts were short and very effective.
I didn’t end up puking…
But i felt awesome after I was finished.
Short intense workouts like these are great for doing afer your lifting sessions.
All the workouts in 100 Conditioning workouts take less then 10 minutes to complete.
I will be implementing many of them after my gq body workout as cardio.
