Full Throttle Fitness: Workout of the Week

Coming straight back from the training runs for the ACLT Marrow-thon at Hyde Park, Cj Swaby (who led this weeks session) got straight into the mix and set the tempo for the session working on explosive strength, and stretching the anaerobic threshold. After a warm up consisting of joint mobility, dynamic body weight exercises and hand to hand Kettlebell swings, we got down to the following;


Double Kettlebell Jerk (moderately heavy)

10 reps x 8 sets 30 seconds rest between sets

A2. Circuit

Single arm Kettlebell Snatch (moderately heavy)

Burpees - We went for standard burpees or single arm burpees

Sand Bag shoulder Slam (or modify to sand bag flips)

Rower Level 10 (men) Level 6 (women)

1 Minute per exercise x two rounds = 1 set

Total of 3 sets with 1 minute rest between.

A3. Tabatta Sprints

20 seconds on with 10 seconds rest x 8 rounds

Cool down and stretch out

That was us done. Ready to enjoy the gorgeous weather and the bank holiday weekend.
