Chaos Training is a method as being the perfect blend of focused strength work, power training, and intense conditioning all mixed together into near perfect progressive-based training program. This workout I am going to show you today is a short strength endurance based workout that you would use in combination with other types of chaos training protocols: one that are high intensity based using complex exercises and the other more lactic acid volume based training using one exercise. I’ll discuss those in part 2-3 of our Chaos Training series The combination of all three makes for a brutally effective workout. Today we are going to focus on our Strength Endurance based workout. The goal of this type of training is to improve your overall strength endurance, work capacity and mental strength all key elements needed for combat athletes in all sports. You will use a longer higher rep / volume based conditioning session. The focus is to test your overall capacity and mental strength -Break when need be but just need to focus on chipping away at each rep This helps to builds physical and mental strength, plus overall strength and endurance capacity The set up uses more strength and power based compound movements like deadlifts, squats, snatches and barbell cleans with volume-based conditioning. You will perform AMRAP (As Many Reps As Possible) of Cleans for 5 minutes resting when needed. Mike used a 95 pounds with the training mask to finish with 79 reps. I used 50lbs for the snatches.
