Effective Workout in 43 Minutes
Two weeks ago Travis Self, owner of Fittwarehouse, flew in all the way from Atlanta to New York to hang out for 8 hours, talk training business then fly back.
However, you better believe we hit a crazy workout!
Obviously with 8 working hours, time was extremely valuable. I helped him set up his website, showed him some sweet online tips and tricks, and revealed a big training strategy to get more athletes into his facility.
I didn’t even charge him anything, I was so impressed he flew that far just for knowledge! I have to respect someone that determined to be successful (well I shouldn’t say it was free, that Alice Springs chicken at the Outback didn’t pay for itself)!
We got to work late Friday, hit a morning lower body workout, went to the Diesel Crew’s Grip Nationals, and he was back to driving to NYC to catch his flight!
But back to that crazy workout.
40 minutes to get one in Saturday morning so we had to pick some big lifts! Deadlift, tire flip, core circuit. That was it, but believe me, that was enough!
Quick and Effective Workout
- 1 Minute 70 lb sandbag shelf loaders
- 1 Minute moving bridge
- Repeat for 10 consecutive minutes.
Travis has a STRONG deadlift for being so light.
However, out of the 43 minutes we took working out, a good 15-20 was him trying to flip the tire! However, he went back at least a dozen times and gave it all he had until he got it!

The movement between dynamic exercise and a static hold for “rest” was extremely effective. Additionally the added grip aspect of the sandbag had Travis hurting before we even left for the grip contest!
Oh, and of course he had to try the Synergy Rope Challenge. Nailed it on the first time! Nice work Travis.
