Have you ever heard of a “Beat the Clock” workout?
Here is how it works:
– Set your timer for pre-determined interval period (in today’s workout example, it is 60 seconds)
– Perform the prescribed reps in the interval period
– Your rest period is the time from when you finish your set, until the next interval starts
It’s AWESOME for building conditioning and mental toughness.
It’s also different than other metabolic conditioning workout set ups you may have tried, because the amount of work you do on each set stays the same, no matter what.
We use workouts like this in the 28 Day Kettlebell Body Revival Challenge.
Give this sample workout a try, and you’ll see (and feel) what I mean:
12 min “Beat the Clock” KB workout
Set your timer to go off every 60 seconds. Start your first set of swings when the timer goes off. Rest from the time you are finished with your set until the timer goes off again. Move on to the next exercise (push ups) and repeat in the same fashion. Repeat four rounds of the circuit total:
— 20 two hand kettlebell swings (recommended weight = 24k men / 16k women)
— 15 push ups
— 10 walking kettlebell goblet lunges per side (recommended weight = 20k men / 12k women)
— 15 recline rows
Okay – how’d it go?
Seems simple, but it’s tough, right?
