A. Turkish get-up – take 15 minutes to work up to a heavy single rep on both sides.
B. 5 rounds of:
5 deadlifts at 55-60%
10 sandbag lunges per leg
Rest 1 minute between rounds.
C. Accumulate 2-4 minutes hanging from the pull-up bar or rings. Rest as needed.
Did this one at home today.
A) 35# – Although I still need to work on shoulder stability, the bigger limiter for me on this was with the first “get up” from the floor. My technique likely needs some tweaking.
B) 105# DL and used 45# barbell for the lunges.
Shelley, it’s possible you are trying to do more of a situp, rather than rolling towards your elbow and driving into the ground with your foot. That’s often where people get stuck. Jay can show you what I mean.
I’ll give that a shot. Thanks Colin.
A. 35#, first time with a barbell! Was fun!!
B. Used 115# for the DL, and 45# sandbags…man oh man those lunges…
C. 3 min. Accumulated…I like this one!!
I haven’t posted on here in a while… I should take my own advice, I guess.
A. I did 65# with a barbell on both sides, and then 85 (also BB) with my left, which is actually the shoulder that’s been tight recently. I just wasn’t confident in the lockout on my right elbow, and consequently wasted time trying to sort that out, and ran out of gas for that rep. 85 is a PR for me with a barbell.
B. 225 for the DLs, and 90 for the sandbag. Scott and I worked together on this one, and were averaging roughly a minute per round.
C. Done – Not sure how much hanging I did, but likely close to 4 minutes.
