1a) 0:00 – 10:00 – Every 2:00 x 5 sets: 4/side Back Rack Reverse Lunges
Warm-up as needed. Alternate legs each rep. Build to an 80-90% effort for the day. We will be building on this for the next 12 weeks, so you want to leave some room in the tank. Add 2.5-5lbs to each of your sets from last week.
1b) 10:00 – 18:00 – Every 2:00 x 4 sets: 5/side Tempo (1-0-3) Front Rack Box Step-ups
These should be started nice and light. The emphasis should be on holding the tempo, not adding load. Perform all 5 reps on 1 side, then switch stances to the other side. Tempo is 1 second up, brief pause, and a 3 second lower. Use a box height that puts your knee and hip in line when on the box.
1c) 18:00 – 26:00 – Every 2:00 x 4 sets: 5 Dumbbell Goblet Squats w/5 second Pause
Reference loading for the Goblet squats from 5 weeks ago. We are going to again work with the standard of having to hold on my only one head of the Dumbbell so we tax the upper back more. 5 reps each with a 5 second Pause in the Bottom of the Squat. Work on that posture in the bottom position.
2) 4 rounds AQAP:
75 Heavy Rope Single-unders
25 Kettlebell Swings 35/26
3) Single Leg Kettlebell Deadlift: 3 sets of 15/side
Rest 90-120 seconds between sets. Focus on position over loading.
