Picnic Table Circuit

What if I told you that a picnic table is a hella great piece of fitness equipment. Here’s one of my favorite circuits that works upper body and lower body strength along with a high intensity burst that builds your power and anaerobic conditioning.

PICNIC TABLE WORKOUT

Round 1

60 sec bench jumps

2 reps of each strength move

Rest as little as possible between rounds

Round 2

50 sec bench jumps

4 reps of each strength move

Round 3

40 sec of bench jumps

6 reps of each strength move

Continue to Repeat this pattern

30 sec, 8 reps

20 sec, 10 reps

10 sec, 12 reps

Strength Moves

standing plyo push ups

Side step ups R

Side steps ups L

Tricep Dips

Lunge R

Lunge L

inverted shoulder taps (left, right = 1)

Hollow rocks

Total time: 20-30 min
Exertion level: 7/10
Workout type: Anaerobic & Strength

TRAINING PURPOSE:

Maximize your time with a full body strength workout that mixes high intensity intervals to build your anaerobic threshold and rev your metabolic engine.

NOTES:

For cranky joints, modify moves by eliminating jumps. Step up on bench instead of jump. Lunge instead of lunge hops. You get the point.

MANTRA:

My body achieves what my mind believes.
