Forteza Challenge Workouts

Ready for a challenge?  The Forteza Challenge Workouts are designed to test both your fitness level and mental toughness via fun, but demanding workouts.

There are plenty of these sorts of workouts online, but as with everything else at Forteza, we’re going to try and make it a little different.  Challenge workouts will combine training themes, combined with our love of old-school training methods and martial arts to make you sweat but crack a smile between all of the grimacing.  Keep watching this space, as the workouts will sometimes include photos, videos or even contests, to see who is out there watching – and training!

Today’s challenge is Fight Gone Bad.  A fight gone well would be a one punch knockout.  A fight gone bad, however, is you going to distance in a brutal, back and forth war of attrition.

Perform 3-5 rounds, depending on your fitness level.  Each station lasts for 60 seconds, with a 60 second rest between rounds.  Try to challenge yourself as much as possible by choosing the heaving weight or most difficult version that you can safely handle for each exercise.  Remember; never sacrifice good form for a few more reps or heavier weight!

Fight Gone Bad

·         TRX or Ring Rows

·         Heavy Two Handed Kettlebell Swings (Men should aim for a 75 pound bell; women 45 pounds)

·         Box Jumps

·         Medicine Ball Slams (Use the heaviest medicine ball that you have.  The less bounce, the better!)

·         Battling Ropes

Enjoy!
