 Training with Purpose:

Alpha Male Project, we train with purpose. There are no mirrors, phones are banned from the floor and there is not too much mucking around.

We go into the gym to hit Personal Records and to get results. That’s what training should be like.

Book in your training time. Go in with purpose and determination. Then go home. Peter Bolsius

4) Sleds drags fwd/bwd for 5-10 minutes. (wrap a chain around an old tyre & wheel and drag.)

This is pretty basic, if you do not have some of the equipment change it up, but try and keep the movement similar.

  • If your knees can’t handle lunges and squats, substitute with heavy prowler or sled work.
  • 2a) 2b) are to be done in superset fashion i.e. 1st a( then b) then rest
  • 3a) 3b) 3c) are to done in tri-set fashion. i.e. 31 after the other no rest between. rest 1 minute after 3c)
  • Replace tyre flips with DB Snatches if you do not have a big tyre
  • Eat clean, (paleo/primal is always a good option) rest hard. get 7 hours sleep, love your family and just be a general good guy.
