Vegas workout.....

I sorta dig Las Vegas.....okay, okay, I LOVE Vegas! We've all heard that saying "What happens in Vegas STAYS in Vegas" right? Well, not this time my friends....I wanted to tell everyone about a very cool, effective, and butt kicking workout that my good friend Matt Durant and I cranked out last weekend in a semi-hungover haze. First off our training goals in Vegas are quite simple and normally follow this 5-step process....

#1 Get your butt up in the morning and to the weight room
#2 Burn as many calories as you can in a short period of time
#3 Feel good about completing this session
#4 Party-hearty
#5 Repeat.....

Well, the partying part normally takes care of itself.....because of this, we NEED to be diligent about getting some training in. Anyway, my boy Matty came up with this little number...try this on for size....

-Superset #1 - Db 1-arm hang snatch 3 x 5, Free Motion cable push-pull rotation 3 x 10

-Superset #2 - DB Flat bench, Free Motion full-body cable wood chop

-Tri-set #1 - Pull-ups, 15lb. med ball burpees with jump, 1 min. eliptical sprint on highest incline Using a 10-8-6-4-2 set progression but keeping the eliptical sprint at 1 min.

-Countdown #1 - Lunge variation + push-up variations using a 10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 progression, alternating exercises

Short, sweet, butt-kicking...what more could you ask for in Sin City?! After that we hit the spa for some relaxation then off to business as usual in the best little city on the planet!
