Christmas training advent calender: 4th Dec 2011, Day 3

Unleash the animal within.

No not the roast dinner you’ve just munched through, your primal animal….primal movements is where its at.

So lets combine a couple for a great all body workout.

This routine assumes some serious base strength, so here are a couple of easier options to the below circuit.  Substitute a plyo pressups (any pop of the hands off the ground is awesome) for the Aztec. You can do handstand push ups instead of the handstand walking (or wall holds). If you can’t do one arm push ups than you can use a standard press up.

Most important aspect though, is to let go of all inhibitions…be an animal, go on ROAR!, i know you want to.

Warm up: 5 – 10 minutes, taking it easy  (run, skip, stair climb, get in the sauna, move move move!!!)

Main Session:

Rest as little as possible between exercises and rest 30-60 seconds between sets.
