Total Body “No Gym” Workout

So we’re gearing up for a 12 week Mud Run Program we’ve put together at my training center in Sacramento, CA …

And as our first group workout is scheduled for Saturday, June 30th, I’m now heavy into “pre-program research and design” mode.  I’m consulting with folks who’ve successfully completed the event, reviewing materials from my endurance sport days, doing lots of internet research, and testing out various workout modalities.

I thought I’d post up one of these “test” workouts here for your benefit … it’s a great one to burn a ton of calories, improve your total body conditioning and have some fun while you’re at it … whether you’re planning on doing a Mud Run event this year or not.
