train like an army soldier

To celebrate Independence Day this year we are bringing in military fitness coach Erik Bartell to grant you independence from the gym! This bodyweight only workout resembles the mechanics of a normal Army physical training session but ties in the advanced conditioning tactics to not only burn a sweat but appropriately engage your energy systems to improve your adaptability and overall endurance.


ACTIVE WARM-UP

The key throughout the active warm-up is to focus on deep breathes in through your nose, and steadily breathe out through your mouth. Never stop breathing.


Bend & Reach - Hand Walkout - World’s Greatest Stretch

6 reps total



Curtsy to Lateral Lunge

5 each side

 


Hand Release Push-Ups

10 reps


Side Lunge - Sprawl - Push-Up

Conditioning

The purpose of these conditioning drills are to develop the explosive endurance of the fast-twitch muscle fibers. This is an opportunity for you to train dynamic energy control in order to improve your body’s ability to recover from high-intensity exercises, increase work capacity, and promote regeneration without sustaining fatigue.

The key is to go max effort for the movements while focusing on bringing your breathing under control and heart rate down during the Stair Steppers.
