The Jocko Willink Workout: Unless you have been living under a rock you have heard about Former Navy SEAL Jocko Willink.
Known for “GET AFTER IT” mantra and 4:30 AM Early Bird workouts and infamous photos of a vintage Timex Ironman Watch on instagram.
Jocko has taken the Leadership and Podcast world by storm with his no BS straight forward message.
It’s all about personally accountability with Jocko Willink. OWN IT!
Look in the mirror! No one to blame but yourself.
And Jocko is a man that would know, he’s a true war hero (he will never admit that). His method is proven and his commanding officers back him up.
Some even say Jocko and his team redefined how SEALs operate and invented the new style of leadership and land warfare tactic still used today by the Teams.
Question: Have you read Jocko’s recent book “Discipline equals freedom”?
Answer: Yes; I have a copy of Discipline Equals Freedom: Field Manual on my desk and refer to it often. I plan on getting a copy for my son. One of my favorite parts is Stress: Good and Bad. That is a good reminder of how workouts (good stress) can be good unlike driving in busy traffic (day after day) can be bad stress.
The Jocko Workout
Jocko “gets after it” in his garage gym or at his MMA/Jiu Jitsu facility in San Diego. His workouts focus around a Squat rack/ rig, barbell, bumper plates, rings, kettle bell, body weight movement and a pull up bar.
Some would say a basic set up but for someone doing High Intensity Interval Training or cross training for their sports, the set up is perfect.
