Power Look Circuit


#1

CT - My office allows a short gym break once a week at our work gym, which is crazy busy during common gym hours. Barbells and racks/benches are hard to count on.

Can you suggest a power look-inspired circuit that can be performed with mostly KBs, DBs, pull-ups, battle ropes, and box jumps that can be completed in about 30 mins? I am trying to figure out ways to use push press, front squat, and chin-ups in some fashion. Thank you.


#2

How heavy are the DBs and KBs?


#3

DBs go up to about 90 or so, KBs are only up to 50 but at least they're in pairs.


#4

Any help would be great, I've been overthinking it...


#5

Sorry slipped my mind. I'll get to it soon


#6

Thanks! Appreciate any help

CT - I tried this recently and it seemed alright... Just toying around with it the first time.

25 mins: Ladder reps of 1-2-3.
A.1-arm kb thruster (did specified reps per arm)
B. Chin-up

CARRY - 5 mins: As many rounds as possible.
KB bottoms up carry 30 meters per arm, holding a heavier KB in the opposite hand at my side.

The first part gives me an easy starting point for progression, just try to beat the total rounds completed. I might add reps to the chinup (2-3-4 to make it slightly more challenging, sets of 1 rep were too easy.
