The Perimeter of STRENGTH!

Who doesn’t LOVE a good perimeter of strength?

Let’s walk the perimeter with our friends on Thursday at The Training Room!

Thursday seems like a great day to walk the perimeter, carry some things, and move our bodies appropriately!

It looks like optimal weather conditions!

The perimeter doesn’t discriminate between levels of fitness!

Anyone can participate!

If you can can walk, you can do this!

Even if you can’t walk, we will give you options as we always do.

Here’s what you will need to participate…

One kettlebell or dumbbell (pick weights that you can manage, but don’t be TOO easy on yourself).

This can even be done with one single kettlebell or dumbell.

Here’s a video from the archives that Jim and I shot ten years ago around The Training Room track showing a single kettlebell variation of “The Perimeter”

Check it out!

Here’s another from 9 years ago on the bike path in Manasquan.

Here is the sequence we will follow on Thursday!

Walking around the block and stopping at each spot!

Get as many laps as you can in thirty minutes.

  • Overhead walk (right arm)
  • 10 (5/5) cleans or deadlift or swings
  • OH walk/carry (left arm)
  • 10 press (5/5)
  • Racked walk/carry

  • 10 (5/5) rows
  • Farmers walk/carry

Have a blast with this one and have a wonderful Thursday!
