Take on your Men’s Fitness workout of the week, a new 52-part series to keep you inspired and challenged for 2015. We’ll post a new workout every Monday and for an added incentive, we’ll take on the workout too so you can see how your best time compares with a member of the MF team.
Workout of the Week #29
Do three sets of 10 bodyweight deadlifts, 5 broad jumps and a 400m run at a 1% incline as fast as you can.
How to do the workout:
Set up a barbell with your bodyweight on it (so if you weigh 80kg you’ll add 60kg to the 20kg barbell). Perform ten deadlifts, generating power by driving your hips forwards as you stand. After ten reps move onto the broad jumps. Jump powerfully as far as you can, using your arms for momentum, and focusing on a stable landing on both feet so you don’t fall forwards. After five reps, jump on the treadmill, set to a 1% incline to replicate the conditions of road running, and run 400m as fast as you can. Repeat the circuit three times in total and rest as needed.
Watch the video, take on the challenge and post your best score in the comments section below.
