Warmup with joint mobility, dynamic movement, and foam roller. Today we are going to hit a plate workout. All that is needed is a 25-35-45 pound plate.

Warmup with joint mobility, dynamic movement, and foam roller. Today we are going to do some HIIT interval training. The twist is what exercises we will do will be drawn from the grab bag. One thing is certain, ropes will be included. It is a fun way to mix things up. Write down several different exercises body weight, kettlebell, running, or barbell, and put them into a bag. Pick a couple out, and you have your circuit. You can make your intervals as long or as short as you would like. We are going to go with a 2:1 ratio of work to rest. Pick 5 exercises (including ropes) out of the bag for 5 rounds of 30 seconds on 15 seconds to switch stations. Have fun with it.

Warmup with joint mobility, dynamic movement, and foam roller. Today we are going to be on the clock utilizing the Tabata protocol in series of strength and conditioning movements. The theory behind the this timed training is to mimic "game like" situations. Go for broke, and leave nothing in the tank to up your conditioning levels. From Wikipedia: "A version of HIIT was based on a 1996 study by Professor Izumi Tabata (田畑泉) et al. initially involving Olympic speedskaters. The study used 20 seconds of ultra-intense exercise (at an intensity of about 170% of VO2max) followed by 10 seconds of rest, repeated continuously for 4 minutes (8 cycles)."
