Super Spartan Training Plan: Day 24 - Pushing

Super Spartan Training Plan: Day 24 - Pushing
Presented by Spartan Training®

With it being a race week , or active rest week, your output demands are significantly decreased from last week. This should feel like a treat to your body.

Today is similar to Monday. We are decreasing our sets and repetitions while keeping our weight the same from throughout the last 3 weeks of training. Notice how your body preceives these resistances today.

This workout will be set up with one 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.


Dynamic Warm Up

Main Set: 

1 – Squat and Press with Pancake – 3×8 (6-7 RPE)

Rest 2-5 Minutes between sets.

2 – Squats – 3×6 (6-7 RPE)

2 – Burpees – 3×6 (6-7 RPE)

Cool Down

Pull out your favorite Acumobility SPARTAN Ball or Acumobility SPARTAN Eclipse Roller. Spend anywhere from 30 seconds to 3 minutes on each muscle, depending on tightness.

Today, you will want to release your:

  • Lats (under your shoulder blades)
  • Pecs (below the front of your shoulder socket)
  • Calfs (lower leg)
  • Hamstrings (back of upper leg)

A more advanced Spartan may also require a hip flexor releases just above your front hip bone.
