Welcome to another episode of Try it Out Tuesday. Actually, the last Try it out Tuesday post was quite a while ago. But still, they are fun and informative. Yes? I’ll try to bring them back more often.
Today I’m talking about a certain workout. One that ya’ll need to try. But before I get into it. I want explain something. You see, last Friday I spoke about telling a gym member to go home an rest. She was over trained and getting to a point where workouts felt obsessive, not enjoyable and purposeful. I told her to rest her mind and body. It a vicious cycle we get ourselves into at times and as a fitness professional, I don’t want to encourage that. Been there. Done that. In fact, I wound up teaching too much, running too much, stressing too much, and literally caused my body to back fire. I took 8 months off of working out to recoup, rest, and GAIN strength back. Today I only do one intense workout a week and it’s usually the one I teach. It’s functional, it’s 50-60 minutes (max), it’s hard, it’s rewarding, and I love it. The other 6 days a week are much more chill! Resting, recovery run/hike or cycling (low heart rate focused), and core work/TRX. I could easily start training for a half marathon again or add in one more intense workout. But I WON’T. Not now at least. Focusing on balance, what I AM able to do, and ENJOYMENT.
That being said, today’s MUST TRY is a crazy good workout and training program.
I’m planning on using one of their workouts this week for my Strength and Sweat Class. Here’s a little demo of what their all about!
Mark Twight is the founder of Gym Jones, a strength and conditioning facility where he and his wife, Lisa, train fighters, football players and endurance athletes. Gym Jones is noted for its work training the cast and stunt crew of the movie “300” (2007), “Repo Men” (2010), “MAN OF STEEL™” (2013) and “300: Rise of an Empire” (2013).
Seriously Impressive, yes? Just think about it. How does one train to be soldier, it’s gotta be FUNCTIONAL and EFFECTIVE.
Physical fitness is an essential trait for every Soldier. National Guard Soldiers are trained to be ready for anything. Just as Clark Kent transforms into the MAN OF STEEL™ when needed, National Guard Citizen-Soldiers transform when their communities call.
Mark Twight, Hollywood fitness trainer pushed cast and Soldiers with a unique workout plan, helping them to transform for their respective roles.

Here’s a workout I found from the first week. I’ll be trying it out tomorrow on my class. Ohh.. this is gonna be fun!
I have a feeling my class is going to love doing more burpees and wall squats, yes?
I usually don’t promote a workout until I have tried it myself, but I have tried all these exercises before. And Mark’s workouts can be tailored for beginners to advanced. I am a firm believer in utilizing the QAULITY of each program. I’ll be doing that in tomorrow’s class, for sure! I’ll keep you posted!

Well, there you have it. Another try it out Tuesday in the books. I recommend trying out ONE of these workouts once this week and see how you feel. Add on from there or just stick with the one. The full program includes rest and recovery days, which I like. Here’s the link to more workouts.
What do you think of intense workouts?
I have a love/hate relationship with them of course. But I do think this workout just might give me BUNS of STEEL.
