Late night training never stopped me

Yes, it's late at night, almost 10 pm, and I could easily call it a day.

But if I did that, I'd barely ever work out!

Fatherhood allows little rest, yet requires serious strength, dedication and tougness

here's my Fatherhood workout....

KB clean and press ladders, 5 reps each, little to no rest between each set!

1) Kb clean and press: 36 lb, 44 lb, 53 lb, 62 lb, 70 lb, 88 lb

That's 6 sets of almost non stop clean and presses, GREAT for cardio and strength endurance!

2A) double KB bent over row 3 x 6 - 8 reps @ 70 lbs 2B) mixed grip pull ups 3 x 5 reps 2C) glute ham raises 3 x 7 reps

As always, short but deadly :)

Keepin' the fire alive!

Go to bed or work out?
By Zach Even - Esh
Wednesday, Dec 13, 2006 04:54
Last night was a loooong night....

I was watching my daughter and my wife went food shopping...late at night.

I was determined to get in a work out regardless of the time. Well, my wife got home a little after 10 PM, we unpacked her car and I returned to finish some work.

By the time I finished and began training it was just after 11 PM at night!

I had to train, so here's what I did:

3 rounds of 1: bands were: Purple band attached to Rolling Thunder

1A) double band snap downs x 20 reps 1B) double band rows x 20 1C) double band chest presses x 20 1D) double band leaning tricep extensions x 20 1E) 2 hand KB Thrusters x 10 reps (grabbing the KB by the ball)

You might be wondering why all the band training? Truth be told, many of the old time strongmen did use heavy duty cables / bands for their training in addittion to the Underground implements.

You'll see more of these workouts popping up in our "old school" section at http://undergroundstrengthcoach.com

3 rounds of 2

1A) TNT cables - rows x 20 1B) TNT chest presses x 20 1C) TNT alternating military press x 5 ea. 1D) skater squat plyos x 6 ea. 1E) mixed grip pul ups x 6 - 8

I stayed away from free weights and cranked out plenty of band and bodyweight training

Rule to follow at http://undergroundstrengthcoach.com: There is no such thing as too late to work out!

Workouts for the Mental Edge
By Zach Even - Esh
Saturday, Dec 09, 2006 11:32
So I decided to back away from the heavy weights for the month of December but I still can't back off from the intensity every single workout.

Sometimes I lower the overall colume and intensity and other time I crank it up and pour it on. Here's what I did today to make sure I keep that edge:

Four rounds of circuit 1

1A) TNT Cable 1 arm row x 10 ea. 1B) TNT Cables 2 hand row x 15 1C) TNT Cable chest press x 15 1D) bodyweight forward lunge x 10 1E)bodyweight reverse lunge x 10 1F) squat jumps x 10

That was an ass kicker, I definitely could have stopped, but this just wasn't one of those days!

4 rounds of circuit 2:

2A) Chest Slap Plyo Push Ups x 10 2B) TNT cable curl & press x 5 2C) power wheel roll outs x 10 2D) skater squats x 10 ea. 2E) mixed grip pull ups x 8

If you ever find yourself getting "soft" then pour it on and up the intensity!

It's good for the mind and good for the body!

"I've learned more in my two months at USC that I have from dozens of books on strength training that I have, and the 'No BS Product Review' saved me $70 in my first couple weeks. USC is worth every dime and more, I for one am going to be a lifetime member. No other site that I have found compares to USC"
Robert Dobó

"Finally!!! Thanks for putting together a site where there's no fancy names and no industry jargon, just back to basics training that produces stronger, more complete athletes"

"As a Chiropractor and running the oldest official Brazilian Jiu-jitsu club here in South Africa I've read about and seen countless different conditioning routines and concepts but very few things have got me as excited and motivated about training as Underground Strength Coach! I thought I knew a fair amount about strength training and conditioning but Coach Zach and USC has really opened my eyes. Theres an awesome amount of priceless information here covering revolutionary training methods for strength, fitness and conditioning. As an athlete, fitness enthusiast or just the average person looking to get in shape the answers youre looking for are here...USC!" "

"Underground Strength Coach is the most hardcore strength and conditioning resource out there! It is jam packed with so many inovative training articles and ideas that you will never have to look anywhere else again!
AJ Roberts

"I am a Combat Athlete [BJJ] and I come from a competitive powerlifting background. When I started researching functional training, Zach's name kept popping up. I joined the USC Team and immediately learned how to change my resistance training to compliment my Brazilian Jiu Jitsu with more muscle endurance. The family here at USC is a plethora of expertise and always willing to guide you in your training. It's like having a family of personal coaches at your fingertips. "
