Thursday noon class each week focuses on “Odd Lifts”, which for our purposes include sledgehammers, maces, and kettlebells.
After shoulder mobility & circular range of motion warm-up consisting of 2-second OH swings & KB halos, we worked on:
(2-hand tire smash, 1-hand tire smash, variations of each…)
(F & B pendulums, virtual shovel, 360’s, 10-2’s, clearing the path, squats…)
(slam dunk, wall ball substitute, flips, H2H swings, 1-hand HP/goblet squat…)
With a partner, alternate motion choices back & forth every 10 reps for 10 minutes at each station- not unlike a game of “H.O.R.S.E”, but with no loser.
If a motion comes up that is new to you, under the eye of a trainer & with light weight, give it a try. Trainer will pair you according to your “Odd Lifts” exposure and proficiency.
