Tues 4-30-13: Litminovs

One of the hardest but best workouts I’ve come across. Simple, quick and challenging. The trifecta.

The Basic Idea
Superset a strength (or power move) and a sprint.

The strength/power set can be any type but full body/lower body exercises that can be excited or transitioned from easily and quickly work best (front squat, power clean, kettlebell swings).

The sprint can be variable as well, ranging anywhere from 5 seconds to around a minute (think 40-400 yard dashes being the two extremes).

The Detailed Explanation
The backstory behind Litminovs is kind of cool and has some wrinkles. Here’s Dan John breaking it down in way more detail.

Today, since it has been a while, my version was mild:
3 sets of:
10 jump squats (max effort each rep)
15 second sprint (~120 yards)
3-4 minute rest between sets.

Simple, quick and challenging.
