    Power=Work/time


    What's the fastest workout you've done? I ask because I just started going back to my old gym. And I forgot that they close at 5:00 on Wednesday. Well, I show up at 4:50!

    From 4:50 to 5:01, including moving the weights around, I did:

    Squats

    4x15, 12, 10, 8

    Dead lifts

    5x10, 8, 6, 5, 9 (dropped a plate off on this last set)

    Can we say brain explosion?! I then had to come home and do my ham curls and some forearm work. But with them, I got to take a bit more time.


    Now you tell me that ain't hardcore. Heh. What have you had to do in a short time? Or what did you choose to do in a short time?

    out in front reverse wrist curls 3x15 (like at the top of a front raise and the bar just stays there and you curl your wrists up; just learned these from westide for "skinny bastards")

    wrist curls 3x15

    plate pinchers (til fatigued to the max) 3xfailure

    Manimalia my man you need to get into Crossfit. You are the PERFECT CANDIDATE for this program. Your workout echos the foundations of Crossfit, that of "functional movements peformed at high intensity".
    It would not be uncommon for a similiar workout to be used as a heavy met-con WOD, probably would look a little more like this though -
    5 rounds for time:
    15 Squats, 10 Deadlifts
    12 Squats, 8 Deadlifts
    10 Squats, 6 Deadlifts

    Something like that... but man, just TRY IT! You're just the guy that would love this kind of ****. That feeling of total body exhaustion is something else!

    One of the hardest short WOD's I've done is a workout called "Fran". This one is very deceiving. It consists of two exercises, Thrusters and Pullups. A thruster is a front squat + a push press, one fluid movement. Pullups, kipping style (higher power output)
    21-15-19
    95lb Thruster
    Pullups

    21 Thrusters, 21 pullups, 15 thrusters, 15 pullups... it's a SMOKER. A great time for the first time would be a sub 5:00, and competative times get into the mid 2:00 range. Top recorded best at the moment is 2:02 I believe, which is an incredible power output. Check it out!

    that does sound VERY interesting. i'm gonna look into this way of training for sure, highland. i've done some workouts, including the one i just listed that left me dead/impressed with myself.

    right now, i'm on a "westside for skinny bastards" type of split. the exception is, is that i do a full body on friday instead of just upper body. it's my "depletion" workout, as i'm also running a CKD diet.

    BUT anyway, having said that, my workouts are nearly almost as fast as Crossfit. for instance, on mondays, i'll do:

    Close Grip Bench 4x10, 8, 6, 5
    DB Bench 3x 10, 8, 6
    BB Rows 3x12, 10, 8
    Back Flys 3x12
    Hanging Leg Raises 4x15

    *I get all this done in about 20 minutes, if that. So, yes sir, quick workouts are right up the alley for me. I'm gonna look into Crossfit for sure. Probably look at a split after I do this W.F.S.B. for my "cut". Reps back at ya, m'man.

    Cool man, hit me up with any questions that ever arise! I absolutely love talking about it. Another heavy weighted "Workout of the Day" came up for today, the WOD called "Linda". Also known as the "three bars of death"! lol
    10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 of: (10 of each, 9 of each... etc)
    1.5x Bodyweight Deadlifts
    1.0x Bodyweight Bench press
    0.75x Bodyweight Clean

    You guys have got to see the video of this woman Gillian. She took second at the Crossfit games back in July (kind of like the Met-Rx Strongman competition, but rather a total fitness comp). This woman makes me go nuts just watching her -
    Welcome to CrossFit: Forging Elite Fitness The video is on today's WOD, Saturday 080906. HAD to share this... she rips through this workout at record speeds. Phenominal athlete. This will motivate just about ANYONE!
