What are these 8-count bodybuilders you keep talking about?

But keep up the good work, it sounds like it's going well!

 8 count bodybuilders are an exercise as follows

1)From standing squat to crouch

2) Kick legs back straight

3) Open legs so they form a v shape

4) Go down into a push up

5) Up from the push position

6) Close legs back together

7) Bring legs back together

8) Thrust legs back into a squat positon and then stand up

The reason they are called 8 counts is because each step should be done to a count of 1.for more info do a google search because i'm sure there will be a better description online and maybe a video of them.

 

Anyway todays workout was a s follows

Minute rounds of the following

1) Burpees

2) dumbell swing ( both hands) with 10kg dumbell

3) Jumping jacks ( star jumps )

4) mountian climbers

5) slegde hammer swings

Repeat x3 with no rest inbetween sets

 

Yes it was hard!

You sound like you're enjoying the fun...

I would try something like what you're doing (with less volume to work into it) but I need to build more strength and muscle cross section first. Eat more while I'm at it.

Have fun with the sand bags...may they be drenched with (hopefully not too much) blood and (a lot) of sweat

Cheers mate. One of the best things that i found is to constantly vary your workout like the crossfit.com workout. I don't tend to do their workouts, but i have done a few. Basicly just alter things to make them fresh, fun and challenging to do. Oh also a ton of unflavoured whey helps, not sure if it will fit in with the spartan health regime eating plan etc etc.

 Also i know that this will upset many people but for me i found that high rep bodyweight exercises DO increase size and strength, well for me they have. Before anyone nags me with all the "theories" there is one Bruce Lee quote that i love..." Take what works for you and reject what doesn't ". Afterall if there was the perfect system evryone will be training the same and there won't be the tons of info out there.

 The same goes for martial arts as well. If there was a "perfect" system then there would only be 1 ma style.Anyway i've proberly opened  a can of worms here.Just my 2 cents as they say....
