I'm out here in Jersey with a bunch of hungry up-and-coming strength and fitness professionals at the HTKA seminar. Having a great time and learning a ton of KICK ASS info to help enhance my training business and lifestyle. Hopefully we can all benefit. Along with all these hungry young badasses, we have a few asskickers as well, Paul Reddick and Zac Even-Esh are phenomenal hosts, Elliott Hulse will be presenting tomorrow, which I am super pumped up about, Mike Stehle, Pamela MacElree, Chris Reed, and several others traveled from near and far for this incredible event. In between sessions, I got called out to have a push up contest in the middle of the room against a strength coach from Australia. Who can do the most pushups in one minute without stopping? I went first and got 50 with Pam and Mike keeping count making sure all reps were honest. Young Lachlan went second and the lanky chap got a few more, bastard. Aussie wins this round. Let me throw a quick workout up here before I run out of time.
1.) KB clean and push press 5x5
2a.) Bench Press 5x5
2b.) Band pull aparts 5x15-20
3a.) Ring pushups 3 x max
-if getting at least 15, add weight with chains, vest, bands, or strap
3b.) Recline rows 3 x max
-if getting at least 15, elevate feet, add weight
-if getting less than 10 on either exercise, add a set or two (or three)
Rest 5 minutes, then with a pair of DB's that total 1/2 bodyweight, perform every minute on the minute for 7 minutes:
7 Hang Power Cleans
7 Front Squat + Push Press (Thrusters)
I'm at the Jersey Shore, GTL!
