Crush City Workout

This workout design is, by far, one of my favorites.  It incorporates constant movement and intense weight training to produce crazy, awesome results.  Whether your goal is to burn fat, build muscle, or increase your strength, this workout can help.  You will bounce from a weight exercise to a cardio exercise, without rest.  By the end of these sets, you will be low on fuel and drenched in sweat.  This is the philosophy that I practice in my workouts and the Crush City plan is a good kick starter for those looking for something different and challenging.  It was inspired by Jim Stoppani’s Short-Cut to Shred.  His program is ridiculously intense, but produces mad results.  I suggest trying the Crush City program for 3-4 weeks to prepare your body for his 6 week gruel session.  Try it out, have fun and Wreck It!

The way this program works is by combining a cardio exercise with one of the muscle exercises. So, for example, you could do jump rope with bench press. Start out with doing cardio for 30 seconds in between sets and then move to 45 seconds then finally a minute. This workout focuses on little rest. Try to move from an exercise into a cardio and then back again. It is tiring but awesome. You will build muscle and shred fat. Pick 3 ab exercises to do on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Do 3 sets of 20 reps each exercise.
