1 minute rest
10 x 2L, 2R Mace 360 @ as heavy as possible in each
1 minute extended-arm mace hold @ 10kg. W, 12kg. M
Brief rest only as needed during work sets; Wear the weight during rest. As always, position governs weight, and attention governs position; Choose a weight you are committed to moving, and move it.
Count and note rounds and partials completed in 6:55 (Ex. 8 rounds + tire smash= 8.1). Demand at least a partial round improvement over last time.
Tire smash: In order for hitting a tire with a hammer to be more than novelty, it needs to be performed with power and fluidity. Focus on mechanics, execution, and timing, and hit the tire like you mean it.
Jump: Be sure to practice jumping with an implement prior to beginning the drill. Ordinarily, we re-set a jump by swinging our arms- not being able to do so (due to holding a hammer) can require some adjustment.
And then, “Time under tension”:
Kettlebell swing: If designated weight is not a cool-down weight, adjust accordingly.
Reminder! (Almost) all movements referenced above are linked to high-quality video demonstrations/ explanations!
