I had a client tonight so I came in late and did a circuit for GPP. As a strength athlete I’m not sure at what point GPP becomes SPP. I guess for someone with non-specific (or “general fitness”) goals there is no difference between SPP and GPP. Anyway…
- Mountain Climbers
- Toy Soldiers
- Air Squats
- inverted row
- flutter kick
- dumbbell swingbicycles (bikes)
- bicycles, bike
- One-leg Romanian Deadlift (1LRDL)
I’m not sure I wrote these in the same order I did them, but it’s pretty close. The only thing I would have liked to add is some kind of burpee or an 8-ct bodybuilder, but I’ve found that bothers my back a little bit because of the tail-under flexed posture I get at count 7. Whatever.
I did 30 seconds of each movement and moved [as] directly [as possible] to the next station. This innovation was suggested by Kyle as something he did at Central College. I did the circuit three times.
A pullup-reach-climb sequence is something I thought up because pullups are just too hard right now. I can’t do 30 seconds of consecutive pullups so instead of half assing it I came up with something to fill the time and also seems pretty useful. Our squat rack has a pullup bar and a crossmember above it, so I do a pullup on the bar, then reach up to the crossmember with one hand, then the other, then do a full pullup. Then I transfer the hands back to the pullup bar one at a time and finish at a dead hang.
