It might shock you to hear this, but if you’re only training for strength you might be doing yourself more harm than good...

Contrast training maximizes not only your strength but also your speed.

Remember, strength is only part of the equation. It doesn’t matter how heavy your baseball bat is if you don’t have the arm speed to swing it around in time.

So, ready to find out the quickest way to become a true threat in any gym or on any field?

This is the Train Like An Athlete - Push Day Power Workout! Let’s do it!

This workout is made up of 4 unique supersets.

The first exercise in each superset is a heavy compound exercise. For this exercise do 3 reps using 85% of your 1 Rep Max.

The second exercise in each superset is a similar movement but designed to be executed with higher speed and more reps. For this exercise do 8 reps using 60% of your 1 Rep Max.

After you finish the superset, rest for 2 minutes then repeat that superset 2 more times before moving on to the next superset.

You’re doing each superset a total of 3 times.

Once you have completed all 4 supersets 3 times, pat yourself on the back - you made it.

As always, the complete workout is listed for you in the description below.

Superset #1

Exercise A: Bench Press Variation (Duffalo Bar) - 3 Reps @ 85% 1RM

Today, I’ll be performing this movement with a Duffalo bar for a greater range of motion - but you can use a regular power bar - football bar - a camber bar - or whatever else you choose to mix things up.

Keep your shoulders retracted back throughout the movement - and don’t lock-out at the top. You want to keep constant tension on the muscle here. No pausing at any point - just like a piston in an engine.

Exercise B: Explosive Plyo Push-up - 8 Reps @ 60% 1RM

Set up in push-up position, body straight like a board, wrists under your shoulders, then perform an explosive push-up into the air, you should push yourself high enough to clap your hands in the air when performing these.

Superset #2

Exercise C: Weighted Bench Dips - 3 Reps @ 85% 1RM

Grab a couple benches, place your feet up on the bench in front of you, grab the edge of the bench you’re sitting on, throw some plates on your lap and perform dips - keep your chest up - lower until your arms reach 90 degrees for a full stretch at the bottom, then drive yourself up explosively and fully lock-out the elbows at the top for a peak contraction in the triceps. Just be careful with these, slow controlled eccentric, fast explosive concentric.

Exercise D: Bodyweight Bench Dips - 8 Reps @ 60% 1RM

Dump the plates off your lap and rep out 8 explosive bodyweight dips - no pausing at any point during the movement - just like a piston in an engine. Full stretch at the bottom then explode up with as much force as you can generate. To add some difficulty you can place your feet up on a stability ball instead.

Superset #3

Exercise E: Incline 1-Arm Dumbbell Press - 3 Reps @ 85% 1RM

Moving away from your typical dumbbell press - to using 1 arm at a time - really forces you to stabilize your core. Grab a dumbbell, lay back on a bench between 30-45 degrees and make sure you have a good foundation set - core braced and tight. Drive that dumbbell up with explosiveness.

Exercise F: Cross Body Landmine Press - 8 Reps @ 60% 1RM

Stand perpendicular to the bar, holding the end of the barbell at chest height, then drive the weight up across your body squeezing your chest hard at the top. If you don’t have a landmine you can perform a lighter dumbbell or cable 1-arm incline press for this exercise.

Superset #4

Exercise G: Overhead Press Variation - 3 Reps @ 85% 1RM

We’re going to use an axle bar for these to ease the joints and drive more power through the shoulders to the bar, but the choice is yours. Plant your heels about shoulder-width apart, Slight bend in the knees, Squeeze the glutes, brace the core and drive the weight up directly overhead.

Exercise H: Explosive Band Overhead Press - 8 Reps @ 60% 1RM

Next, grab a band of medium resistance, stand on the inside about shoulder-width apart, then grab the top of the band just outside your shoulders and drive your hands directly up overhead so the band forms a rectangle at the top. Remember speed and explosiveness with these. Again, if you don’t have a resistance band, you can simply strip off 25% of the weight on the bar or perform lighter dumbbell presses to finish off this workout.

Until Then - keep training hard!
