I’ve got something cool for you today.
I call this “Chaos Exposure Training” and it’s something I’ve been testing out and tweaking for the better half of a year and the results I’ve seen with this stuff has been insane.
Here’s a bird’s eye view of how this “chaos” training fits into the grand scheme of things:
To let you in on more details, watch this overview video:
So, we’ve got the same movements – 4 Different training set ups that all test and challenge your body in different ways that will produce different results.
Here’s the different types of “Chaos Exposure” set ups I talked about…
1 – “Strength / Metcon”
4 Rounds For Time Of:
a) Deadlifts @ 315 x 12
b) Burpee x 24
-Short, strength based metabolic conditioning based session
-Focus is on speed, power, and efficiency against the clock – it’s you against time
-Little to no breaks if possible
-Build lactate acid threshold, power and strength endurance
2 – “Kardio King”
3 Rounds For Time Of:
a) Burpee x 10
b) Deadlift x 2 @ 405
b) 800m Run
-Longer based cardio conditioning based session
-Focus is on adding in a endurance / cardiovascular focus while also blending in a bit of strength for fun
-Little to no breaks if possible – use the run or burpees as “breaks”
-Builds cardiovascular system and strength depending on how you set it up
3 – “Grinders”
Complete For Time:
Deadlift x 3 @ 185
Burpee x 3
Deadlift x 6 @ 185
Burpee x 25
Deadlift x 9 @ 185
Burpee x 20
Deadlift x 12 @ 185
Burpee x 15
Deadlift x 15 @ 185
Burpee x 10
-Longer higher rep / volume based conditioning session
-Focus is to test your overall capacity and mental strength
-Break when need be – just need to focus on chipping away at the session piece by piece
-Builds physical and mental strength, plus overall strength and endurance capacity
4 – “Interval / Pace“
10 Rounds NOT For Time Of:
a) Deadlift x 5 @ 315
b) Burpee x 10
***Rest 1 Min between rounds
-Short bouts of HIGH intensity work
-Focus is on going at a 95-100% effort for each round without letting effort drop off in later rounds
-Blends light to heavy strength work with moderate rep light weight / bodyweight work
-Strategic breaks are used to help keep intensity HIGH during work periods
-Improves lactate acid threshold and recovery, plus strength and power endurance
So there you go.
4 different set ups using the SAME movements.
Each set up will challenge your body just bit differently giving you a a good dose of training stimuli.
And if you want to become a total BADASS, this is exactly what you need.
So go ahead, feel free to drop your thoughts and comments below and let’s get a little training discussion going on.
Live and Train Aggressive!
PS – Keep your eyes peeled for early next week as I’ll be revealing something BIG.
