The Athlete's Workout


The NFL combine is unlike anything most people experience. You prepare for an event where your body could be the difference between a seven-figure salary and fighting for your job. That's why training for the combine and other sporting events is designed to have you dialed in. While the stakes aren't as high, you can train the same way as these athletes with this high intensity workout.

How to do this Workout

Perform this workout three days a week, resting at least a day between each session. So you might go on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.

Complete the exercises as straight sets by performing all sets of a given exercise before moving on to the next. Make sure you rest as needed in between before moving on to the next.

Circuit : Do 1 set of each exercise in a group consecutively, without rests in between. Once  these exercises have been completed, repeat the circuit again - doing 1 set of each with no rests in between. Continue until prescribed number of total sets are performed

Strength : Complete all sets of an exercise at the same time with rests in between. Then move to the next exercise.

Superset : Two moves done consecutively (like a circuit) with no rests in between.
