This workout includes 6 cycles of 6 reps for 6 exercises which will total 216 repetitions. You can pick any exercise according to your level and increasing or decreasing the the time of rest will modify the intensity of the workout. Here is the exercises I did with some suggestions of alternative exercises if you begin to tire or need something to help progress you onto the main exercise:

I did this work out with a friend at a local reservoir where we found some bars to play on. You can perform the cycles and sets as you please, alternating the exercises will give you some rest bite to some muscles and allow for minimal rest which will increase cardio intensity or you can concentrate on each exercise to work on strength a little more but either is fine. Due to needing to move around for equipment we completed the first three bar exercises first then moved onto to the others. I will be playing around with the order in future to keep things fresh.
It was great to get outside to train. Bars are in short supply where I live so was chuffed to find these at the local reservoir in Birmingham, UK. It was a hot humid day so quickly got the sweat going and the lungs working but the heavens opened up for a welcome cooling downpour…although from the looks of it passers by wasn’t so pleased as they ran for shelter. I’ve no doubt i’ll be back to the convenience of the gym at some point but nothing beats working out with the sky above and theres always something you do, even without a bar.
There is plenty of help on the web for all these exercises and help with progression and i’ll be providing some tips and techniques in my future blogs but to help point you in the right direction just google the exercise, I have included some resources from YouTube and BodyBuilding.com below:

This workout is actually the easiest of three 666 workouts:
- 666 (Just missed purgatory) – 6 cycles of 6 reps for 6 exercises (216 reps)
- 666 (Entering hell) – 6 cycles of 66 reps divided by 6 exercises (396 reps)
- 666 (In the bowels of hell) – 666 reps divided by 6 exercises (666 reps)
Today, I tackled the first of these hellish workouts. I did the second with help of Evolution of Fitness gym in Coventry the other week which was all pull-ups which was gruelling and i’ll get back to that at a later date.
