Sometimes, I hate being an old man. I already go to bed early because I get up so early, so when I go to the west coast, I’m worthless by 7pm.
And this week I’m in San Diego with Craig Ballantyne, Bedros Keuilian, Shawna Kaminski, the Croation Sensation Rick Kaselj, Dan Long and more. Bring on the coffee baby.
We’re exploring how we can help the world eat more pancakes and do more finishers (at least that’s my agenda).
But this morning, I’m supposedly working out with Shawna Kaminski, but it’s more like Shawna is going to whoop my butt. That’s what she does. She challenges you.
Look, her workouts are tough, I won’t lie. But that’s why they are only 20 minutes. After all, 7 seconds of rest is just enough to whisper anything in tongue, and then it’s time to hit the next exercise. You’ll see what I mean soon.
Take the following workout for example:KB Swing Spiderman Pushups Goblet Switch Lunge Pull-up Sit-out Plank (recovery)
Do 5 rounds of 35 seconds of work with 7 secs of transition OR 20 reps of each exercise
By the way, if you need a sub for the pull-ups, you can do inverted rows or strap rows – and if you don’t even have that available, perform prisoner style switch lunges instead of goblet switch lunges to work the back.
It’s the perfect blend of compound movements, very brief rest periods and “recovery” exercises. It’s what she calls “M2A” training and because of this approach, you can get the SAME results as a 60-minute workout, but without all the cortisol hormone being jacked up.
Cortisol is the hormone that ENCOURAGES fat storage – it’s typically increased with longer workouts and stress.
So, while you burn more fat in less time with her M2A approach, you’ll also DECREASE cortisol as well because of the shorter workouts.
But let me warn you, Shawna will kick your butt. But you’ll love her after seeing a difference in the mirror. You’ll see more definition and less belly fat thanks to the short, intense workouts and without the hormone cortisol.
And once you’re done with Shawna’s workouts, you can do my 4-week Challenge Madness program, which uses Bodyweight challenges. Check out this finisher after Workout B of that program:
Do the following circuit as many times as possible in 3 minutes:Lunge Jumps (3/side) Explosive Pushups (3) Bodyweight Chops (3/side)
Just wait until you see what you have to do in weeks 3 and 4…
Then forward your receipt to us at email@example.com and we’ll send you the Challenge Madness bonus.
Long live the challenge approach,
