All Body Compressed Volume Circuit

Location: Woodcock Sports Centre, Aston University
Date: 23rd March

Workout: All body compressed volume circuit

Total Time: 20 minutes

Post Workout Nutrition: breakfast of champs, 50 minutes later.

I did 3 rounds of 10 reps.
  • Chin ups - body weight (had to rest before last 3 reps of last set)
  • Romanian deadlift - 70kg (too easy)
  • Dumbbells chest - 24kg (had to rest before last 3 reps of last set)
  • Pistols - body weight - only 3 reps each though - still getting back into these. Not quite parallel to floor either.
  • Clean and press - 16kg (dropped to 14kg in last set for last few reps)
For details on these exercises, go to the All body compressed volume circuit page, where I describe this routine in more detail.

As ever, this routine was a painful but invigorating - anything with no defined rest tends to have that effect. It give the same kind of punch as the 300 workout without punishing you quite as much. It made sense to opt for this in the wake of a couple of weekends of bad food...
