“Corpse Without a Soul” 6:58
(Mercyful Fate– “The Beginning”)
Count rounds and half-rounds completed in 6:58. Today: Dry-run each movement with chosen weight- Once we start, it stays with us. If position breaks in either movement, remainder of time is spent holding the weight in a static position.
Note: If kettlebell is dropped or placed on the ground prior to expiration of time, workout ends and 100 burpees commence.
And then, 3 rounds of:
1 minute Airdyne (Arms only @ minimum 40% of max RPM)
1 minute Airdyne (Legs only- arms in “Prison” position @ minimum 60%)
:20 sec. @ 20%
And finally, “Time under tension”:
Anchored squat @ 15lb. W, 25lb. M
Work to “True” failure (loss of physical positioning) not “Relative” failure (loss of mental endurance). If time reaches two minutes, you may stop if desired. If time is under two minutes, do it again, and accumulate at least two total minutes.
