Full Body Training on the Beach

by Jordan Syatt June 13, 2012

In today’s article I provide two short videos which show/describe my first training session in Israel. Beneath the videos I outline my specific goals, exercise selection, sets, reps, and rest periods.




The Training Session

Goal: Full Body Strength, Speed, and of course Fun 🙂

1a) Broad Jumps: 6 x 4 (Rest: None. Go Immediately to Pushups)

1b) Speed Pushups vs. Light Band: 6 x 5 (Rest: :30 seconds and then cycle back to Broad Jumps)

2a) Romanian Deadlift vs. Strong Band: 5 x 5 (Rest: None. Go Immediately to Dips)

2b) Dips vs. Light Band: 3 x 8 (Rest: However much I wanted. Probably about 90 seconds before cycling back to RDLs)

3) Neutral Grip Chins: 3 x 10 (Rest: However much I wanted. Probably about 90 seconds between sets)

And that’s it. Ideally I would have included a bit more upper back work but:

  • An Israeli man started to follow me around to tell me that Squats are bad for the knees and dips are hard enough without band resistance. I just smiled politely and gave him the ‘ol thumbs up.
  • My friend was on his way to pick me up so we could go eat Shawarma
The best Shawarma in Haifa!
  • And I really just wanted to sit and enjoy myself on the beach 🙂

More videos to come soon! If you don’t want to miss out on any new information make sure to subscribe to my YouTube Channel now.

Never Minimal. Never Maximal. Always Optimal.
