The next several articles will feature 12 round workouts, which sculpt the entire body while developing functional strength. These round robins are all I do to support my athletic endeavors. I conduct a round, rest, and conduct another until I’ve completed 12 rounds (usually takes between 40-50 minutes). If you legitimately bite off on this format, I promise amazing results. Don’t be thrown off by the number of reps I conduct or the weights I use, either too heavy or too light – tailor this to yourself – but keep it challenging. You want to be DEAD after each round. Then rest as long as you need. Then kill yourself again!
First Four Rounds: (Wearing 20 pound weighted vest) 20 wide grip pull-ups, 50 kettlebell swings (35 lb.), 15 decline pushups. Rest until you’re ready, go again 3 more rounds.
Second Four Rounds: (Still wearing the 20lb. weighted vest) – 20 pull-ups (hands cocked at 45 degree angles), 15 flat pushups, 10 Suma squats to each side (where you sling the weight to the side and touch it down outside the foot – while still facing forward – as much as you can). Rest, etc. 4 rounds total.
Third Four Rounds: (Still wearing the 20 lb. vest) 20 close-grip pull-ups, 15 dips, 50 Suma squats (normal between the legs).
WITH EACH WORKOUT – WE WILL BE SWITCHING OUT THE EXERCISES, WEIGHTS AND REPS – TO KEEP MAKING PROGRESS.
