A Love Hate With the Hill Workout

Written by

 I get bored very quickly when it comes to the same thing all the time and you know what? So do your muscles. They need IMG 3676change as well.

Our muscles adapt and they stop guessing what we want from them and often times they plateau. It is good to change it up mentally and physically otherwise I catch myself just going through the motions at times just to get it done. Especially on a beautiful day, the last thing I want to do is go in my basement and workout or inside anywhere!

I KNOW when I come to this hill, it is going to be ON! You can not half ass it. Even if you worked your way up to the workouts I put in the video on ANY hill, you will still get a great workout being on such an incline even if you walked it.  I do not think the video shows the true potential of this hill, but trust me, after like one or two times, it gets brutal. I hold this hill not quite as propelling as training with World Champion Tommy Bach at Seong Hea's Martial Arts, but pretty damn close.

I stare at it for awhile and have to work myself up for what is about to take place. And the kicker is, I make up my own routine and hold myself to the integrity to not cheat myself with what I have written out to accomplish that day. Always be true to yourself, no matter what you are doing! A lot of times the workout is geared towards becoming better in the ring. Faster, stronger, focusing on the muscles that will allow my body to perform at my best. I even wear my mouth guard so it does not phase me when I spar or fight. You will see that at the end of this video when I can barely talk hahaha. You can do this workout for a killer leg day and the only piece of equipment I brought was a resistant band to wear around my thighs in some of the drills and off course my Beats Solo 3 because I don't know about you but I always have to workout with music in my ears! You can work your way up to this work out. All you really need is yourself and a hill. 

For this particular workout I did three different sets of runs with twelve in each group.

1. I sprinted twelve times consistently in a row

2. I did more leg work with the resistance band, side shuffles, lunges, up/downs etc. all clips are in the video and I did mix it up until each one up the hill equaled twelve total. (If you have any questions, you can ask me!)

3. I did twelve total up and down the stairs with hops.

4. I did some shadow boxing in the sand.

5. Lastly, not shown, I did three, two minute rounds of shutter kicks for my abs.
