I just received some feedback on the Bulldozer Training method from martial artist and e-book author John Roche...
I ran with the bulldozer training for several weeks and really enjoyed using it. It tends to appeal to my ‘fast and done” attitude.
However i did modify it slightly and have been having even better success with it the past several weeks. I have applied EDTs to the set (mini sets). It is challenging and benefit producing.
Take two opposing movements, say Military Press and Chins. Now alternate between them on the minute until you have completed the total number of reps you are shooting for. If you complete in one and are still short in the other, keep doing them both until you have done all the reps you need.
I then split the Deadlifts off and do them alone. Again I do each set on the minute until all reps are completed.
By on the minute I me simply, start your reps when the second hand hit 12:00. When you finish your reps you can rest until it hits the 12:00 again. This has a great built in intensity mechanism. The longer the set take or the more reps you can do the shorter your rest interval becomes. If you are doing Renegade Rows or alternated press your rest can become QUITE brief.
Again thanks for the great routine idea and articles.
May the Lord bless you and your household.
