Super Spartan Training Plan: Day 10 - Pushing

Super Spartan Training Plan: Day 10 - Pushing
Presented by Spartan Training®

With endurance training, your goal is to be able to withstand an exercise for a longer duration of time. This is where things get tough. Endurance is more mental than physical. In today’s pushing workout, you will work your mental and physical toughness. Remember, when your head tells your that you cannot push through, your body can keep fighting. Give that extra 10% to endure to a new intensity, Spartan.

This workout will be set up with one pancake lift followed by 2 tri-sets of an upper body exercise, a lower body exercise, and a plyometric/ power core stability exercise. You will finish off with one final superset of body weight stability exercises.

We’ve built this workout using a Spartan pancake for resistance, but you can also use a kettlebell, traditional sandbag, or most anything, really. Click each exercise to view a demonstration that shows proper technique. Always perform each movement in a controlled and strict manner.

Today, you will want to release your:

  • Lats (under your shoulder blades)
