My belief is that when you remove a lot from training plans, you open the body to injury and overuse. However, there are times when you need to get in, get it done, and move on.
Often these times come when you have little in the way of equipment, like when on holidays or when deployed. The following is a plan you can use to stay in top shape while training in a very small time frame using only two kettlebells and a pull-up bar. Note: The program begins with the requirement of being able to perform 6 pull-ups. All pull-ups need to be performed from a dead hang with feet off the floor.
The program is pretty simple. You begin week one by performing a set of 6, then 5, 5 again, 4, and a final set of 3. Week by week, this ramps up until you are able to achieve 20 dead hang pull-ups. Recon Ron 2. So, for the first week of training, each workout looks like this: Clean and jerks — 6 reps Pull-ups — 6 reps Clean and jerks — 5 reps Pull-ups — 5 reps Clean and jerks — 5 reps Pull-ups — 5 reps Clean and jerks — 4 reps Pull-ups — 4 reps Clean and jerks — 3 reps Pull-ups — 3 reps Front squats — 3 reps Fall in a heap Perform this workout three or four time per week.
On alternate days, perform some MAF running for minutes. Instructions on Following Recon Ron 2. Begin with a weight for clean and jerks that you can get reps with fairly comfortably. Squat with the same kettlebells you use for the clean and jerks. Rest as required during the circuit. However, because we are trying to kill as many birds as possible with the fewest stones you should try to push the pace if you can.
Warm up with some hanging and thoracic spine extension work to help you achieve a good overhead position for the clean and jerks. If you want to be a super-stud, try either performing this program while wearing a weight vest or by including a 5km run before or after.
For genuine tough guys, do the runs in the weight vest, too. If you want to run this program longer than a month or so, I suggest that you go up in weight when you get to sets of Add weight to your pull-ups and go up a kettlebell size for the squats and clean and jerks. Keep following that pattern every time you get to 10s. If you ever get to performing this routine with 32s for the clean and jerks and squats while wearing a 10kg weight vest, while also doing a 5km run after in the vest, please let me know.
