Fitness: The Warrior Workout

Contributed by paustian on Jan 02, 2014 - 08:03 PM

This is the workout that Tony developed for traveling around the country to various Military bases. He was faced with an interesting problem, how do I create a workout that a ton of people can do at once, that doesn't require any equipment, large amounts of space, and is challenging. The answer is, The Warrior. This is an intense workout that challenges all your muscles. It is broken down into 4 complexes of 4 moves each; an upper body move, a lower body move, a core move and a cardio/plyo move. Many of the moves incorporate a stability component, forcing you to recruit muscles along the kinetic chain. For example, Thumbs-Up Push-Up, you do a push-up and then raise your right arm and left leg. This activates the stabilizing muscles in your left arm and right leg, while at the same time working your back, glutes, hamstrings and shoulders. Needless to say, you will be sweating by the time you get to the end of this, but it's fun all the same. Be careful with the sprawl moves (moving to the ground from an upright position) Form is important here to avoid injury. This is a great workout to do on the road, since you don't need any equipment and can do this anywhere.
