The Carlsberg Accumulator
I love those carlsberg adverts
Where carlsberg don’t do…
<Insert thing they don’t do>…
but if they did it would probably be the best experience in the world
you get the picture!
In my training and for my clients I always look at thinking a bit outside the box, to do different challenges and keep things fresh.
It may be that you are starting out and you want a challenge
or you don’t have a load of time
either way this training session will reach parts others fail to reach.
It is simple to perform but can be brutal. The first 5 exercises are the core exercises, each round you add or accumulate another exercise to perform. So essentially you do a total of 7 rounds. It is designed to rest your lower body as you work the upper and vice versa, working through each muscle group.
Each round increasing by one exercise every time.
Lets check it out…..
perform the first 5 exercises, rest 60-120 seconds afterwards, then each time add the next one from the list until you get to 11 exercises,
7 rounds in total.
perform each exercise for 10 reps
For the weighted exercises, look for a weight that you could perform 12 reps for.
If you don’t have some of the equipment, substitute the exercise.
Inverted Bodyweight Rows
Barbell high pull
DB Renegade Row
assisted squat jump with straps
See how far up the accumulator you get.
As always, look at thinking outside the box with your training, whether your goal is strength or conditioning, this training session will increase your General physical preparedness (GPP) to improve both.
