powerbag challenge

If you have a powerbag to hand then give this short but sweet challenge a try. Perform 5 reps of the following, clean and press, burpees and lateral jumps over bag. This is 1 set and the aim is to perform as many sets within a 10 minute round. Post your scores here and check out the video of a couple of sample sets. http://www.resultsconditioning.com/archives/545

If haven’t got a powerbag to hand then here is a challenge you can do with just a barbell. It involves doing 5 reps of high pulls, push presses and burpees and completing as many sets within 10 minutes. I did this challenge at the end of an hour circuit workout with the women using 7.5kg and the men using 15kg. If you’re going to do it fresh then I would suggest using a weight that you could complete around 12 reps of push presses with. If you really want to push yourself then perform a full burpee with a press up at the bottom and an explosive jump at the top or to make it more sport specific by doing sprawls instead. Anything above 15 sets and you are doing well.

Alternative equiptment

You can also do this will dumbbells, kettlebells, and sandbags. I'm a huge fan of burpees and clean and presses; together this is the ultimate full body workout.
