Competition bench press at the Hangar

The new Bench Press coming to the Hangar

Any one who knows even a little about me or Hostyle know that I have a love for the bench press! From day one I have had our heavy duty competition bench here at Hostyle.   Nothing worse than trying to build your bench press on a bench that’s not wide enough or at the proper height to be able to engage effective leg drive.

The Prone Row – another kickass piece of equipment coming to the HANGAR

The Prone Row Bench – Not just amazing for your lats Another unique piece of equipment that will be at the Hangar is the Prone Row   NO MOMENTUM AND LESS STRESS We perform other horizontal pulling exercises – like bent over rows or seated cable rows – but We don’t get the same feeling of “isolation” we do with this new movement.

Hostyle Workout of the Day – Muscle and Hustle #2159

One of my favorite workouts is when we combine short burst cardio like 500 m runs or 350 m rows with Strength exercises. Today we will be hitting both the Curd 500m run and a 350 m row followed by some bodyweight exercises with some accessory work. Each round is a series of 3 mini targets. When we break down bigger workouts into smaller chunks we can drive harder mentally. When we look back 20 -30 minutes later we can see[…]

Hostyle Workout of the day – 3 minute drills #2157

  How hard can 3 minutes be? Watch any boxing match or UFC and see the fighters killing it for 3-5 min rounds. You see them getting gassed! Now of course they train for insane cardio and getting punched in the faced and kicked in the gut repeatedly at the same time must really add something special to experience I’m sure. For Todays workout I wanted the group to feel just how long 3 minutes can really feel. Warm Up[…]
