Thought I’d share:
For the beginning of a swim season, I thought I’d get some conditioning in as opposed to liftig heavy, and tabata was getting kind of old and easy, so I used the “300” concept, which was to do 300 reps of compound moves in minimal time.
This is the original workout:
50 deadlifts w/135
50 box jumps
50 floor wipers (some stupid ab move)
25 db clean and presses on each arm
I thought that it was kind of stupid. 50 reps of ab work?? And the single arm clean and presses, right before pullups? I’d have gone into the pullups with one arm shot.
So I switched it around:
25 power cleans w/135
25 deadlifts w/135
25 front squats w/135
25 box jumps (used my bench)
25 bent over rows w/135
25 push presses w/115
25 front squats w/115
For the first run, I managed it in just over 35 minutes taking it easy a bit. I only managed 15 power cleans, and then switched it to 35 deadlifts yesterday, and 15 push presses and 10 pushups instead of 25 push presses.
Going to do this today and probably tomorrow, take a day off, and go back to lifting heavy. Swimming starts on the 13th.
Sub 30minutes is the goal for today.
Tell me what you think, how you’d change it up, if you care to try it out?
The first thing I’m going to change is upping the deadlifts to 185, because 135 is just a joke.
