Workout Finisher: Warrior Conditioning
Speed, strength, power and endurance: nail this workout finisher to get conditioned like a true warrior athlete.
Whether you're a combat sport athlete, have future aspirations to be one, or just wanted to be a conditioned like one, then you've got to find the balance of endurance and power. The following finisher can be added to the end of any workout to help build both attributes.
Warrior Conditioning Finisher
> Med ball slams
> Med ball push-ups (alternating)
> Plyometric chin-ups
> Box jumps
>> Perform each of the following exercises in consecutive order.
>> Each exercise is to be done for 15 reps or failure (whichever comes first).
>> Repeat the set two times.
a) Perform each exercise and fast as possible.
b) Plyometric chin-ups: perform a normal chin-up, but as you’re coming up, bring your knees up as well. At the top of the exercise, “jump”, releasing your hands from the chin-up bar, grabbing hold again as you descend.
c) You can replace med ball slams with sledge hammer slams if you have the right equipment.
d) Box Jumps: start by standing atop a 15+ inch bench. Drop down, then jump back up atop the bench, spending as little time in contact with the ground as possible.
