Hostyle Conditioning – This workout almost killed me

I decided that this week would be dead lift week at Hostyle.


…Like Shark week but deadlier…

So throughout the week we used the deadlift in our various workouts..

Some workouts like Kettlebells we used it as one station in a series of other kettlebell moves done in a gauntlet style for an AMRAP 30 minute format.

During the conditioning workouts I loaded 5 – 6 bars at different weights to be done in gauntlete style.

I had people go thru the  Deadlift series.

the weights started at






if they could not get the 3 -5 reps at any given weight they had to do corresponding alternate stations.

65lbs – 20 burpees

95lbs – 25 body weight squats

115lbs – 30 Box jumps

135lbs – 40 Ball slams

225lbs – 45 Ankle touches

We did it as AMRAP 25 minute workout doing as many rounds as possible with no official rest between rounds.

Then It was my Turn

Now I was so freakin motivated by the the groups effort I decided to do my own version.

5 reps of each of the following weights







then after each round I did the following.

Round 1 – 20 Burpees

Round 2 – 25 Bodyweight Squats

Round 3 – 20 Box Jumps

Round 4 – 40 Ball Slams

Round 5 – 45 Ankle Touches

Round 6 – 50 Kettlebell Swings 24kg

Time to complete 42:15

It was total Ass Kickery !!

My back is nice and tight today, It will be interesting to see the next few days of training feel like.

It goes to show you how you can incorporate one move as a theme for all sorts of different training.

Of course it helps to have a facility like Hostyle Conditioning that is set up to do this type of training.

Try it and let me know what you think!
