Weekend Workout – You’ll Be Next In Line For Mayweather After This One

With approximately one week left before the biggest combat sport event of the century, Mayweather vs. McGregor, I felt it appropriate to share a weekend workout that features boxing & kickboxing techniques. I combined a couple hands & feet combinations with a pair of body weight exercises that are guaranteed to make you sweat!

Head to the ETT YouTube channel (link) if you need further instruction on the power cross + lead hook and/or squat to front kick exercises. I recommend performing the workout in interval format (30 sec work/30 sec rest) for 12-20 minutes. Don’t forget to warmup and modify the workout to match your fitness level.

If you complete this or any weekend workout, please let us know in the comment section below OR you can send a us pic/video of you doing the workout on social media (FacebookInstagram or Twitter). ENJOY!

Weekend Workout – Your Core Is Much More Than A 6-Pack

A lot of people think when they see someone with 6-pack abs that they have a strong core, but that might not necessarily be true. Your rectus abdominis muscles make up your 6-pack, but to improve core strength you need to perform exercises that strengthen your pelvic floor muscles, obliques, transversus abdominis, erector spinae and more. Below is an example of a workout that will strengthen your ENTIRE core and help you get that highly coveted 6-pack.

I recommend performing five 10 rep supersets of this workout. Don’t forget to warmup and modify the workout to match your fitness level. Let us know in the comment section below if you completed this or any weekend workout. ENJOY!

Weekend Workout – The Best Of Both Worlds

This weekend workout combines another pair of plyometric & isometric exercises. Plyometrics get your heart rate up & increase your maximum force production while isometric exercises are great for increasing strength with little to no risk of injury. ⠀⠀

Make sure you warmup and modify the exercises & intervals to match your fitness level. If you complete this or any weekend workout, please let us know in the comment section below OR you can send a us pic/video of you doing the workout on social media (FacebookInstagram or Twitter). ENJOY!

You all know how much of a fan I am of workouts that include proper striking techniques, which is why I’m excited to share this weekend workout with you. I combined a couple hands & feet combinations with a pair of body weight exercises that are guaranteed to make you sweat!

What’s on the Menu

Taking a little different approach to this week’s look at what’s on my menu. Instead of highlighting a healthy food item, I’m going to tell you about a healthy endeavor that Elemental Training Tampa (ETT) will be offering this week. On Saturday, November 19th, ETT will be bringing our free monthly group workouts to the Seminole Heights neighborhood. Shannon and I are residents of Seminole Heights and we thought what better way to give back to the community we love so much than helping people improve their fitness.  The workout will incorporate basic punching & kicking techniques with complimentary strength building exercises to help you start your weekend off right. No experience is required and exercise modifications will be provided for all fitness levels. As if the workout wasn’t enticing enough, each participant will receive a 15% discount at one of Seminole Heights best coffee “shops” Spaddy’s Coffee Co. We will also be collecting non-perishable food items for ETT’s annual food drive for Metropolitan Ministries. All the details about the workout can be found on our Facebook event page. If you live in and around Seminole Heights, please come out and see what ETT has to offer. You won’t be disappointed.
