Simple but Brutal Back Pack Workout

Today had a brutal workout, but it would sound to boring and simple for the average
person that trains. When workouts are simple people seem to look past simplicity and look
for more complicated.

I will tell you that complicated rarely works long term. If when you workout and you find
yourself spending to much time trying to remember the next exercise, you are wasting valuable
training time and concentration.

After years of the complicated I switched to a more simple approach using my bodyweight .
I limit the number exercises to usually no more than 3 in a session. This allows me to focus on
training and not what’s next. I also believe in attacking as much of the body as possible eliminating
isolation movements.

I switched to simple and explosive and almost eliminated all  isolation type movements and almost
eliminated all injuries. I know these go against everything we have been told about what an training
regime is supposed to look like.

The more you move your body in a way that mimics real life movement the more athletic you will become.
Exercise’s I do are used as a warm up or a cool down but could never be used as the focal point of a
real training program.

I don’t flip tires, swing kettlebells, use any traditional training methods, I don’t put chains around
my neck unless I’m in a dog collar match. I go for intensity, I work as if  my life depends on it, I need
to survive mentality. It’s either you or me.

I choose workouts, times, reps, and decide what needs to be accomplished. I put my times up when
I train to give people something to shoot for, these are workouts I put together so I’m the lab rat.

I have to figure what my plan is and attack, attack and attack until the goal was accomplished or get as
close as possible so I can attack it again at a different time. High intensity training is a tough style of
training and can really discourage the people that are mentally weak.

Mentally weak is more of a problem than physical weakness, but people spend more time working on
their physical appearance instead of working on the most important thing that will get us the farthest
“The Mind”.

The mind pushes us past the limitations we have, it makes us stronger or makes us weaker, and
unfortunately a weak mind is what  breaks most people down.

Try this workout: Simple concept and only requires two exercise’s.

50 Step ups on a 15″ bench – 25 pushups while wearing a 45 lb back pack.

Do 50 step ups with each leg – drop down and do 25 pushups and repeat
switching legs each time for 10 sets or rounds stopping as little as possible.

If you do complete all 10 rounds you will have completed 500 step ups and
250 pushups wearing a 45lb back pack.

My time just under 27 minutes.

This is a very brutal workout sounds easy but beware!
