This week’s 300 WOW (workout of the week) is what we call “The Mary.” It’s six exercises, 50 reps each, with specific loads prescribed depending on male or female. Do it legit if you want to really do “The Mary” or simply adjust the loads and make it work for you. It’s not easy but it’s a great 300 workout! Enjoy!
“The Mary” 300 Workout
A few years back I put a challenge to an LLU client, Mary (who you see at the right), to create a 300 workout. I told her to pick six exercises using what she’d learned from me about arranging a workout, muscle priority etc and I told her if she did a bang up job I’d put the workout up on the web, I’d do it, and I’d name it after her. Well, she did exactly that. And I did name the workout after her.
I hadn’t done “The Mary” workout in several months. It IS a tough workout – it is NOT for the meek. The video below is a bit long but it does show me doing every exercise and explains what each exercise is to be done and with what loads for each exercise.
The exercises for this are:
2. Incline Barbell Press
3. Air Squat With Bar Stepover
4. Barbell Curl
6. Stability-Ball Pass Combo Crunch
