Ask yourself the following questions:
- …Bored with your workout?
- …Looking for a change?
- …Tired of stale, bland, banal training like bench presses and bicep curls?
- …Looking to build real world strength and endurance?
If you answered yes to any of the above questions I have a few ideas for you. Some are relatively simple to implement and others will require you to go out and get some workout tools. The necessary equipment ranges from a medicine ball to a tractor tire and a sledgehammer. As a companion to this post I will be posting some pet projects of my own over the next few weeks. The first of which will be a weighted sled with a harness. Since I am pressed for time and this is an introductory post, this post will provide some video links to get you started thinking about some unconventional workouts
Want to Train like an MMA fighter- try tire flipping (at the 1:!5 minute mark)
Another good example of MMA training with a minimal amount of expensive tools, including, an old rust weight bar and a few friends on your back.
Hardcore medicine ball training

I hope these clips give you some good ideas on ways to shake up your workout. Stay tuned for more.
