"Do Work"- "Manual Labor" Day Style

Good morning everyone and day happy day after Labor Day.

Today we did some major work, Labor Day style. The gym was packet and it was great to see so many people working out on their day off. As I told my client Sharen, "fat never takes a day off", why should we! I dubbed today's workout the "Manual Labor" day workout.

This was a 6 exercise circuit that we did each exercise for 60 seconds followed by a 15 second rest. Then repeated the entire circuit 3-4 times.

Warm Up:
We started the workout with some self myofascial release on a foam roll then did 1000 meters on the rowing machine.

1. Dynamax Tall box lifts ( placed 2 plyo boxes on top of each other at about 60 inches, then lifted to ball from the ground to the top of the box, repeat till time is up)
2. Sledge hammer lunge chops(change legs after 30 seconds)
3. Dynamax bucket toss (change sides after 30 seconds)
4. Kettle Bell dead lifts
5. Tube metabolic back (20 rows, 20 alternating rows, 20 swimmers. Keep repeating till time is up)
6. Partner rope pulls (heavy rope attached to water filled kick boxing bag. Pull 20 yards to partner then keep repeating till time is up)

Have fun with this one! and remember to......

WOW! it has been a long time since I put a post up. I apologize for the long delay between post. Things are finally starting to settle down with my new role at the gym, traveling to seminars, and basic family life.

So, today I will keep it short and sweet with a little video from a recent F.I.T.E Club workout. I hope you enjoy!
