physical. 03/04/16

    Moving through something en route to something else is often not enough immersion to teach an adequate lesson; Sometimes we need to bathe in it in order to absorb it.

    10 rounds of:

    :20 sec. extended-arm mace hold
    10 Mace 360/ Kettlebell halo
    5 calories Airdyne

    Weight for hold and 360 are the same today- self-scaled, challenging, and uninterrupted. If needed, kettlebell halo is performed at up to 1/4 BW. Airdyne calories are a vicious sprint in each and every round.

    There is no designated rest- take as little as possible, and recover breathing during hold.

    And then, 5 rounds of:

    2 reps “Hollow position complex”
    (4 360 sit-up + 4 V-up + 4 Rocking chair= 1 rep)
    10 Underhand bodyweight row

    Hollow position complex: Goal is completion of each rep (12 movements) without breaking position. Today, if needed, rest no more than :10 sec. between each rep.

    And then, “Time under tension”:

    Hollow hold/ rock

    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.
