The Burpee Trio Workout

Posted: November 20, 2012 by Bonnie Pfiester in Boot Camp, Conditioning, Full Body, Workout

This is a perfect short circuit to take your workout up a notch, raise your heart rate and challenge your body. Complete the following 3 exercises as follows.

1. Overhead Static Hold
Hold heavy weight (dumbbells, sandbag or barbell overhead) as long as you can

2. Burpees
do as many burpees as you can in a row (with jump) if you start to crap out or compromise form, move on.

3. Rest
rest as little as you can

Repeat until you’ve completed 150 burpees

Workout A is all about up and down. Since the Savage Race will have you up on your feet, like running through the Rubbers, as well as covering some serious territory crawling on the ground, or through pipes like the Colon Blow, you’re going to have to be ready. To kill this race, Burpees will train your body to pop up fast after a low crawl, as well as get your cardio in tip-top shape. High Knees will strengthen your hip flexors so you clear the Rubber tires and minimize tripping. Let’s get this sweat-party started!

10 Burpees
30 High Knees through your own virtual tire run.
REPEAT 3 X

Tools: Use chalk, athletic agility ladders, bands or tires.

There are 8 individual workout segments we will be using over a 4-week period to get YOU ready for a Mud Run like SAVAGE RACE. Do the workouts in the order written on DesignerWhey.com three days a week. Although you don’t have to do a SAVAGE RACE to train like a SAVAGE, we encourage you to join your Designer Whey resident trainers as they attend SAVAGE RACE in Central Florida October 20th. Visit http://www.SavageRace.com for more information and like us on Facebook to learn how to join Steve & Bonnie for one mud run to remember!

Workout by Steve Pfiester
FitFluential LLC compensated me for this Campaign. All opinions are my own.

If you’ve watched Ultimate Fighter, you’ve seen the contestants do more than just work on their punches and ground game – they train to be in the ultimate shape so they can outlast their opponent. It’s not enough just to be strong, to be fast or to be skilled if you run out of breath. Conditioning training is essential – and that is training that combines strength and stamina. If done right, you should be breathing like you’ve never breathed before – like you are gasping for your very last breath. When you work that hard, it’s just a natural primal instinct – an instinct of just trying to stay alive. That’s why we named this RAW (Ridiculous A**Kicking Workout, dedicated to GNC Beyond Raw) PRIMAL. Enjoy!

Watch, while Steve Pfiester, trainer for ABC & VH1 weight loss reality shows, puts MMA fighters through this RAW workout in the BCx gym. Then follow the written workout below and let us know how you do! (NOTE: Optional exercises and video demonstration linked below to replace exercises requiring tools you may not have access too)
