The Bulldog Gear Challenge was designed to test your strength, stamina and capacity for doggedness once fatigue sets in.
Brought to you by the creative mind of Andrew Tracey, the Challenge is based around a singular online workout event using a weighted vest.
The workout was created to challenge even the toughest of athletes; however, it is fully scalable, and offers the chance for athletes who may not usually wear weight vests to give it a go, even if that means scaling some of the movements!
Pushing your ability to run, pull, press and lunge all with a burden greater than your own body weighing you down; testing not just your physical strength, but your mental determination.
Moreover, it was designed to give you a clear goal to work towards, a tangible focus for your training, giving you the opportunity to hone all of the qualities required, before putting yourself to the ultimate test.
The final workout relies on four separate movements; running, lunging, push-ups and pull-ups, all while using a weighted vest.
The Bulldog Gear 20kg Incremental Weight Vest ranges from 2kg-20kg increasing in 1kg increments, allowing you to continue progressing throughout your training and perform at a weight that suits YOU.
Break up or scale any of the reps, distances, movements or weight according to your own capacities, the aim is to get uncomfortable, to find your limits, but still to complete the workout.
Ring rows, banded pull-ups, hands elevated push-ups and reverse lunges are all excellent and respectable options - just make sure the vest is on!
Choose movements and a vest weight that will push you out of your comfort zone - that’s the number 1 goal.
Get yourself a 20kg Incremental Weight Vest! The vest comes with removeable 1kg blocks, making it easier to progress towards your goal weight for the challenge.
The workouts in the weight vest guide will provide a progressive framework to help you build towards the full challenge, adapting and increasing your capacity as you go.
Start training! See how you can push your limits further over the next 8 weeks with the incremental weight vest.
