Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) August 24, 2006
When Philadelphia based FitForce Camp owner Jerry Hill heard that celebrity Michael Clarke Duncan had lost weight by wielding a sledgehammer and running with an old tire strapped to his waist he was excited that people were finally ready to embrace this style of training.
“Swinging a sledgehammer is a blast and it's also brutally effective,” said Hill, “It really tightens up your abs while melting away that stubborn fat.” He adds that the classic overhead strike and hands together hip strike are a good place to start when learning how to use the sledge. Tire sprints are pretty simple; “Take a piece of rope. Tie one end of it around the tire, the other end around your waist and take off running.”
Hill gives his top three workouts using these unique tools:
1. Set your stopwatch - 100 sledgehammer strikes. Keep track of your total time.
2. Set your stopwatch - 60 yard tire sprint with 60 yard walking recovery for 10 rounds. Keep track of your total time.
3. Set your stopwatch:
A. 20 sledgehammer strikes
B. 60 yard tire sprint out and back
*Repeat for 5 rounds, keep track of your total time*
Hill demonstrates the respective sledgehammer strikes in a quick video; http://www.fitforcecamp.com/Video/aug2.htm He covers innovative information like this in his free monthly video newsletter; to learn more about this unique style of training opt-into his newsletter on the FitForce Camp website.
