by | Oct 26, 2017 | Workout of the Week | 0 comments


Each week, Stroops brings you a resistance band workout with a healthy mix of functional training. This week we will be focusing on the Son of the Beast. Go catch up if you missed last weeks workout. If you’re all caught up, lets get into it. For this workout, you will need the Son of the Beast and a sturdy anchor. If you don’t have something to anchor to, check out our anchoring options.


The Spooktacular Workout

This is a quick spooky workout; short and sweet, but very effective and fun. You will have 30 seconds of slams with no rest. Use the pumpkin get ups instead of rest to lower your heart rate. The key here is to go as hard as you can during both slams and to not drop your pumpkin. Repeat this 4 to 5 times to complete this spooky workout.


Start using Stroops in your training


Double Slams // 30 seconds

Position yourself at the start of your training zone. Go as hard as possible for 30 seconds.

Pumpkin Get Ups // 5 reps

Place your hand so your pumpkin is stable. Instead of a rest, this exercise will lower your heart rate.

Alternating Leg Double Slams // 30 seconds

Position yourself in your training zone. Stabilize yourself on one leg and go as hard as possible without loosing your balance.

Pumpkin Get Ups (Opposite Hand) // 5 reps

Use the hand you had not in the first set. Make sure your pumpkin is stable, and be sure not to drop it.


The Son of the Beast is a super versatile training system, but if you want more than just two slastix ropes; check out the Son of the Beast Pro to amp up your workout. Give this workout a try, leave us comment below and tell us what you think!
