WORKOUT CHALLENGE: “THE CLIMBER”

“It is not the mountain we conquer, but ourselves.” ~Sir Edmund Hillary

ARE YOU READY TO ASCEND?!

TAKE ON MY WORKOUT CHALLENGE:

“THE CLIMBER” Routine is another fast-paced Metabolic Conditioning (MetCon) workout.

WHAT’S THAT?!? Check out my 1st MetCon blog post for a primer.

This workout is perfect for you to complete at the end of your regular routines, as it will increase your fitness levels AND burn body fat. You may also do this as a stand alone workout.

THE MOVES:

10  DUMBBELL THRUSTERS  ( VIDEO link )

20  MOUNTAIN CLIMBERS  ( VIDEO link )


THE HOW:

Perform 5 Rounds for time. This means there are no planned breaks between exercises, or sets ~ AT ALL!!

Keep the intensity UP! The goal is to complete in 5 minutes or less.

The recommended weight for the dumbbells are:

MEN: 15 lbs/each (2 x 15 = 30 lbs)

WOMEN: 10 lbs/each (2 x 10 = 20 lbs)

SCALE THIS ROUTINE TO YOUR FITNESS LEVEL:

Beginner: Lighter weights, and/or take breaks as needed.

Intermediate: As prescribed.

Advanced: If able to complete in 3 min. or less, add weight.

Be Well,

Maximillian Barry
