Are you looking for a new challenge to integrate into your typical Pivotal Fitness Greenville gym routine? Do you want to spice things up and step up your workout a notch? Are you on the hunt to achieve some new, impressive results? If so, I may have just the thing for you.

Fitness expert and innovator, Krissy M. Cags, is the inspiration behind this intense, butt-kicking barbell workout-of-the-day (WOD).  Kick-start your week at the Pivotal Fitness Greenville gym with this strength-building, leg-burning, and confidence-boosting WOD. Throw yourself into the fire. Feel the burn. Confront the challenge.

Let’s get you started.

  1. First, load up the barbell with an appropriate weight. Krissy uses 95lbs. You will sustain this weight during the entire workout, so make sure that you load up the barbell with something reasonable. All set? Okay. Let’s go.
  2. Thrash out 20 thrusters.
  3. Hash out 20 sumo deadlift high pulls.
  4. Pound 20 push presses.
  5. Kill 20 back squats.
  6. Hammer out 20 front squats.

This WOD is no joke, right?

This barbell challenge is for time. So, run-through the WOD as quickly as humanly possible. Note: Each time you break the 20 reps there will be a 5 burpee penalty. Ouch. Do the reps unbroken and no burpees for you. Spare yourself the added pain.

Go beast all over this challenge the next time you hit up the Pivotal Fitness Greenville gym. Sure, it is going to be tough. Yes, it is going to hurt. All of this discomfort is a good thing, though. By challenging yourself, you have the power to inspire meaningful change. The only way to progress with your fitness and health goals (and life goals!) is to let go of excuses, fears, and anything holding you back and throw yourself into the fire. You must face the challenge head-on.

Good luck Greenville gym enthusiasts! You got this.
