Today’s Workout 11/21/13 “Knuckle-Dragger”

Today’s workout has no met-con or crazy movements. It’s not meant to be exciting or fun; it’s about moving a lot of weight, building strength, and getting ripped. I’, going to go ahead and hazard a guess that the guys will really enjoy this the most but ladies if you’re struggling with Pushups or Pullups…

Today’s Workout 11/8/13

I usually post the workouts on my Facebook page for Modern Savage but since FB seems to be having some issues no doubt related to the NSA spying on me I’ll post it on here and hope it shows up.   Fridays are usually dedicated to working the rear posterior chain and shoulders. Today is…

Today’s Workout

Today’s Workout: Bend the Bar Yesterday was about lightweight and body weight movements. Today we’re going to load that bar until it bends, yes folks its Deadlift day. As we move forward over the next several weeks you’ll notice that some days we will be doing what most people would refer to as “Body-Building” workouts…

Today’s Workout 3/4/2013

Welcome back to Savage Fitness and living life outside the box. Today’s workout will consist of three couplets after a short warm-up. Each pair of moves will feature a bodyweight motion complimented with a weighted lift; in this case squats. The Idea is to either perform each pair as a super-set or to rest between…

Workout of the Day, October 7, 2012

It’s been awhile since we posted a workout while we’ve been rebuilding Legion Fitness. While today is technically a rest day I have been using the down time to practice my nemesis and Achilles heel; the Double-under! Who would have ever thought such a seemingly simple move could be so hard to master. It is…

Workout of the Day, September 4, 2012

Tuesday’s Bootcamp will be channeling Spartacus. I didn’t write this routine but have used it several times to work on my own conditioning throughout the past several years. Though I’ve posted an article about it on Legion before I’ve made a few changes for tomorrow to focus more on the strength training side of things….

Workout of the Day, August 28, 2012

Tuesday’s Workout is titled the “Triple 40.” It consists of two circuits of three exercises repeated for 12 minutes after a short run and 100 Jumprope turns. We’re going to work our foundation muscles with a few body-weight movements and some Plyometrics.   The trainees will warm-up with a 400 meter run around the complex then perform 100 jumprope…

Workout of the Day, Saturday August 25, 2012

I almost feel a little weak for posting this a day ahead of time but I’m excited about what we’ll be doing tomorrow in Bootcamp so I thought I’d share it with everyone. Saturday is “Meet the Kettlebell” day and my trainees will be shaking hands with my favorite clump of cast iron. While there’s…

Workout of the day, August 22, 2012

Today’s workout is going to be a little different for my class. Last winter I picked up two 70lb sacks of sand from Lowe’s and fastened some rope handles to them for extra grip. Altogether these custom built workout bags cost me around $11 to make. If you were to buy a similar set-up it’s…

Workout of the Day, August 20, 2012

Last week we mixed in a lot of Bodyweight movements with circuits for a high Intensity blast. This week we’re going to continue with that trend but we’re going to add a heavy weight training component to the first half of our routine. Today is all about Shoulders and Hamstrings. During these moves we’ll use…

Workout of the Day, August 17, 2012

Today’s workout will be the routine my bootcamp does tomorrow morning. It’s going to consist of  several stations and done as a “chipper” working from one to the next then reversing back through the stations again. Wash, Rinse, repeat until time expires. This will be shorter than most of my workouts, contrary to popular Cross…

Workout of the Day; August 13, 2012

Today’s Workout is a variation of the CrossFit classic “Cindy.” This whole week will feature several benchmark workouts designed to assess your ability and progress and identify weaknesses and sticking points. It’s important to be honest with yourself about your performance and not allow frustration to impede you. If you cannot perform a movement identify…
