- Workout was actually “Combat 60: Extreme Cardio Fighter”. As usual, see my Tumblr for any thoughts or comments (linked at the top of my profile).
I actually considered listing this one as “The Gods Hate Me!”, but I’m still saving that one for a special workout that I haven’t met yet.
This is pure interval training calorie burning. It’s a solid cardio routine that lasts for an hour and doesn’t slack off. Then at the end, just when you think that things will relax a little, you drop to the floor and begin the muscle toning.
First you’ll do the push-ups. These go from push-ups into a kind of roll. With hands still on the ground, you lean out to the side and move in a circular motion toward the floor and come up on the other side. Then do more push-ups, then roll in the other direction.
The roll has another option, where you go low at the side and slide “like a robot” to the other side before pushing up.
Then ya roll over and begin an ab burning crunch routine. You do your ab crunches with hands behind the head. Then instead of a pause, you clasp your hands together to make a big fist, do a crunch up toward the right or left, roll the large fist in front of your body to the other side (by twisting at the abs of course), then bring your shoulders back down.
Your fists are essentially taking the place of a medicine ball.
Repeat several times, then move back to the push-ups. Repeat the push-up routine for a bit, then move back to the ab workout. Remember, this is after just shy of an hour of punching, kicking, jumping, moving, and sweating.
It was at this point that I was thinking that, ya know, I just may have found THE workout to file under “The Gods Hate Me!” on Fitocracy. It was genuinely crossing my mind as I pushed through clenched teeth just to finishing moving through the reps.
Clearly, I freak’n LOVED this workout.
I missed very few reps through the workout. There were a few bits that confused me because I hadn’t watched the video ahead of time, so I wasn’t prepared for the changes. Other than that I stuck with it and shed a couple of pounds of sweat, at least.
If you don’t have Les Mills Combat already, why the hell not? It’s $60. That’s the cost of a video game.
