Here’s how one Weymouth personal training client smashed it today

Hey

.

So, this evening I had a little Christmas treat for one of my clients. This guy, Marcus, has been with me for quite a while now, and pretty much hits it as hard as, if not harder than any client I’ve ever trained. The guy loves it.

.

Being the standard Christmas to NYE hangover that this week always is, the gym that we usually train in was closed. So, today I decided to give him a little treat.

.

We met at Lodmoor Country Park, and Marcus hit a blinder of a workout, despite being a little worse for wear after a hard day working, as well as 5 (scheduled) days off training over Christmas.

.

Anyway, heres what we, or rather HE, got up to . . .

.

Warm up circuit

.

Kettlebell (KB) swings x 20

KB lunge to shoulder press x 20

KB burpees (no jump) x 10

Warm up 2

.

KB walking lunge x 6, then 75% effort sprint to marker 30 yards away. Jog back recovery, then back into another 6 KB walking lunges in same direction, into sprint to same marker. Carried on until he’d lunged all the way to the marker. Jog back with KB to finish.

Main session

.

Car pushing - Pushed car max effort for 30 secs, rest for 30 secs. Repeated x 4. Rest 2 mins then repeat.

.

KB push up to 1 arm row x 10

KB sprawl to deadlift x 10

KB swing x 25

.

Repeated x 3, no rest between exercises, but 1 min between sets.

.

Savage Set

.

24 squats

24 lunges

24 split jumps

12 squat jumps

Straight into 200m car push.

30 secs rest

Then repeat for return journey.

.

Ropes to finish

.

Using 45 foot long bulldog jacketed rope . . .

.

20 secs work: 20 secs rest of the following . . .

.

Alternating wave

Double wave

In’s and out’s

Reverse circles

.

That’s it!

.

So that was a pretty intense session. Took around 55 minutes all in, and fair to say the guy was pretty smashed at the end. Car pushing is as awesome a tool for developing leg power as it is will power. Quality workout, that’s gonna keep Marcus burning ridiculous amounts of calories for the next 24-36 or so hours.

.

Maybe try it out sometime ;-)
