I try to make each workout tough and challenging, but for some reason, there is always one during the week that kicks me in the butt more than the others. I like to call this type of workout the “Favorite Terrible Workout of the Week.” I seem to have more willpower these days to take on more weight or to make sure I don’t take more rest in between circuits. Overall, I just feel pretty strong. These are also terrible because walking the rest of the day is challenging. It’s weird how you can feel so good after a workout like this, but your body is saying “ugh, I hate you right now for doing this to me!” Well, I encountered a Favorite Terrible Workout of the Week yesterday and I’d like to share it with you.
5 Inverted row
Repeat X 5
30-60 second rest in between
I recommend doing the inverted row as quickly as possible after the deadlift, but don’t rush your deadlift. Keep good form!
Rest 2-3 minutes and grab some water (you better enjoy this rest 😉 )
Push prowler using low bars 25 yards
15 Kettlebell Swings
Push prowler back to starting position using tall posts 25 yards
Repeat 4 X
Rest 1-2 minute in between each circuit
Above is a picture of a prowler, but if you have a smaller sled you are able to push, that works, too. I pushed the prowler unweighted but feel free to make it more “terrible” by adding some weights to it.
I did the above workout at my new favorite gym 11 Athletics. Here is a link to their website and I recommend going to try it out for a day. They have a 50 yard turf field and lots of room for functional workouts. The staff is laid back and very informative and knowledgeable. They are basically da bomb diggity.
If you are awesome and try this workout, let me know how you felt after. Did you try any variations?
