Opposites Attract (Modified)

This workout puts you through the wringer. Like “Circuit-Style 8: My Compliments,” (from my book “Maximus Body”)  it’s also a complementary circuit, so your goal is to finish fast. But because it’s a longer workout with lighter weights, there’s more of a cardiovascular effect. Prepare to feel like your lungs are engulfed in flames.


Load a bar with a weight of 135lbs (normally bodyweight but this can be crushing for most people hence the modification). Start with the deadlifts and do 15 reps. Then, move on to the bench press—I suggest using 135 pounds (or do regular pushups if that’s too heavy)—and do 15 reps. That’s1 round. Do 5 rounds, resting as little as possible.

1. Barbell Deadlift: 15 Reps @ 135lbs
2. Barbell Bench Press (or Pushup): 15 Reps @ 135lbs

Rounds: 5

Time: 5 to 10 Minutes
