In honor of our local Country Music festival here in Eau Claire, WI, I decided that I would throw together a workout.
The template for designing a crazy effective workout is simple.
My rule has always been… Keep it simple.
Simple means big bang movements using minimal equipment while closely considering loading (weight), rest period(s) and total time of workout.
Avoid complexity at all costs. Complicating a workout with fancy technical lifts only moves the risk versus reward pendulum deep into the RISK category.
I equate HIGH RISK with HIGH INJURY.
Enough babbling, start training.
Give this a go…
Country Jam Training
—> Time: 14-20 minutes
—> Work-set: 2 minutes
—> Rest: Remaining time after work is completed
—>Equipment: Bodyweight + Suspension Trainer, Gymboss interval timer or equivalent
15 Push Ups
30 Mountain Climbers
30 Jumping Jacks
15 Full Burpees or 15 Inverted Rows (if you have a suspension trainer)
* Complete full reps of each movement for the set amount of reps. Pay attention to full range of motion and technical perfection. Your rest period is determined by the speed with which you complete the final rep of burpee. Rest begins then. Each round starts at the top of EVERY 2nd minute.
An example of what I am desc is seen below:
Minute 20… Start set
Minute 18… Start 2nd set
Minute 16… Start 3rd set
Minute 14… Start 4th set
… and so on.
Customize the workout to your training level…
- Beginners/Intermediate: Start with 5-7 rounds of this (10min-14min total work)
—–> If it is easy, add more rounds of work.
- Advanced: Go for the full 10 rounds (20min) and don’t look back.
—–> If it is easy, add load to the movements or add rounds (12-14rounds… 24-28 minutes)
Did you get your heart rate monitor yet?
Don’t underestimate the power of a bodyweight workout. No excuses, just get the work done and get on with your day.
Remember the equation:
Intense physical exertion + clean eating = Ramped up fat loss
See you soon… let me know how it goes…
