This is one of my staple workouts when I am gearing up towards an event, a fight or just want to improve my overall health and conditioning. Its got no bells and whistles on it, there’s nothing fancy about this but it works and it does the job. I could make this fancier, add in more unnecessary exercises, add in some complexity to make it look fancier but thats not how we roll. So, instead I recommend sticking some Black Sabbath on or some System of a Down, crank it up and just grind it out! You’ll feel better for it 🙂Continue reading “Burpee Conditioning”

Calistenics is an often overlooked and underutilised training tool. Yet you will find that it has been used as a staple by many old school conditioning coaches. I always begin bodyweight training with any new clients. Whereas swinging a kettlebell takes some time to learn, bodyweight training is much safer to begin with and can even be used as a deload week as a break from weights.
We have tons of really challenging bodyweight workouts that require zero equipment, and can be challenging from any level from beginner to advanced.Continue reading “Bodyweight Training”
The sandbag has been used for many years as an old school conditioning tool by martial artists, strongmen and in the military. It can provide exceptional results, is cheap, easy to transport and helps to hone very functional strength and conditioning. Unlike the barbell, which is designed to enable you to move the greatest weight possible, the sandbag is an awkward dead weight lump. As soon as you grip it you immediately tell the difference between a sandbag and a barbell, often with a sandbag you will have to reduce your lifitng load by 50%.Continue reading “Sandbag Training”
Kettlebells have been used as an old school conditioning tool for decades. They are fantastic for the modern man who struggles with time. In an ideal world we would all have a couple of hours a day to train but there is so much to cover and so little time. When balancing work and family it can be hard to find a workout that allows you to train functional strength, create hypertrophy, train your cardio and endurance. This is where the kettlebell steps in.Continue reading “Kettlebell Training”
