Title: Few Caveman Circuits
Post by: dugless on January 03, 2009, 04:55:44 PM
Hello...new to the forum...i have been training with various methods over the years with areas that never developed...about 18 months ago i began doing some MMA and recently switched to gi jiu jitsu...mostly because i was not recovering from no-gi and mma and i wanted to focus more on technique...during this time i dropped down from my just plain disgusting weight of 202 to 159 for my first fight...i still enjoy the BJJ workouts but it does get difficult to motivate mid-day in NYC to get to practice...i recently came across the caveman workouts which is very similar to my circuits that i had been using...here are a few circuits that i have been using and would like to share:

1   burpees                                        10
2   heavybag clean 115#s                  5
3   kettlebell cleans                        20
4   single arm kettlebell rows            15
5   biceps strap-curl                        10
6   pushups                                        20
7   chinups                                          5

   Goal    5 Minutes


1   burpees                                                   10
2   kettlebell get-ups                                     5
3   alternating kettlebell bench                   10
4   biceps single arm curl                             5
5   back extensions with medicine ball           10
6   diamond pushups                                   10
7   hanging knee lifts                                   20

   Goal    5 Minutes

1   burpees                                                   10
2   heavybag clean 115#'s                               5
3   alternating kettlebell bench                   10
4   single arm kettlebell rows                         5
5   pullups                                                     5
6   diamond pushups                                   10
7   crunches with medicine ball                   40

   Goal    5 Minutes

what i typically do is pick two of them and sandwich in-between a concentration of either back/bi's/core or chest/tri's/core ...enjoy

Awesome!
The bicep curls sound a bit specific, but otherwise, I love it.... especially the time limit.

all are done with kettlebells...on the strap curl just attach some webbing and do it in a hammer curl motion...hold the strap do not thread your hand through it this way it also works your grip...for the other version just normal hang curls with kettlebells...enjoy
