Got this idea from Brooks' blog and thought it would be cool to hear about some of the lifting cardio workouts you guys do. I'm not talking about sled pulling, hill sprinting, or elliptical work...I'm talking about lifting, carrying, or loading to get your cardio work.
I haven't done it in a long time since I've been working with the sled, but I used to like to finish my workouts with tombstone carries, farmers walks, or loading drills. They made great finishers and added a lot of fun to the end of the workouts.
Every once in a while I will use Bryce Lane's "Have it all" workout or the York's Simplified System of Weight Training (for athletes) as cardio sessions. I've posted both of those before, but can expand on it if anybody wants further information on them.
I'll do clean and jerks for a set number of reps and as fast as possible without breaking form. That usually means I'm moving between 135 and 185 pounds until I learn to get under the bar quicker. It is very tiring and I'm dripping with sweat after 5 or 6 sets.
