Training in Georgetown this Morning

Suspension Trainer

Early this morning Grant and I had a training session by the waterfront in Georgetown. Usually a busy spot, but if you’re up early enough you can soak in views like this making it worth the alarm bells!

Perhaps this is a good time to introduce the kind of training Grant offers, thus the workouts I go through twice a week. Always outdoors, we often start with a short run to get warmed up — nothing more than a half mile. Then Grant sets up a circuit, usually consisting of four different elements, that I go through about three or four times. We use a TRX Suspension Trainer, TRX Rip Trainer, a fire hose and a 65 lb. rubber tire, sandbags and kettle bells, and occasionally a sledge-hammer — not your regular lineup!

The Breakdown:

The TRX Suspension Trainer can work multiple areas as it leverages your own bodyweight, allowing hundreds of exercises. This morning we started with squats and then onto rows and finished with this (painful) TRX Pike.

The TRX Rip Trainer helps you develop rotational power, strength and core stability. In this picture you’ll see from the shadow on the grass that the cable is wrapped on the tree. Here you control the pressure/resistance based on how far you stand from it. Basic rotations are done with arms extended in front, but there are multiple alterations you can add.

Today, Grant brought back out the tire. I DETEST this thing. He calls it the “65 lb. octagon of death” — I strongly agree. Try sprinting with this thing wrapped around your waist and you’ll see what I mean.

We stepped up the planks today to incorporate rows with a sandbag. Killer.

So basically I looked like this before I began my work day! Clearly I’m ready for happy hour now…have a wonderful weekend!

      Hi Kelly! Mind if I pass along your email to Grant and he can touch base with you?
