Daily Workout

Physical preparedness is a core principle of Innis, so we incorporate daily exercise centering around functional fitness into our lives.

So, in this archive, you will find the daily programming that helps us pursue this goal. Feel free to steal them and use them for yourself.

If you find the routines difficult or cannot perform them for some reason, you should scale the reps, weights, and exercises to fit your circumstances.

Remember,  the authors and their compadres are performing the workouts, so you’re not alone in the grind.

A pure cardio day. We got off the barbells for a day to allow for recovery.

Death By Cardio

EMOM (Every minute on the minute)

10cals to 20cals  (increment by a calorie per round)

  1. Assualt Bike
  2. Air Runner
  3. Rower
  4. Rest

As an example, the first round will be 10 calories on the bike, 10 calories on the runner, 10cals on the rower, and 1 minute of rest. If you reach the 10 calorie threshold before the minute is up, congratulations, you get a few seconds of extra rest.

After the minute of rest, you will repeat, but at an 11 calorie threshold. Continuing adding a calorie until you cannot reach the threshold on the machine. Once this happens back down to a pace you can complete in 45 to 50 seconds and finish out the 11 rounds.
