5 rounds of:
Adjust kettlebell swing weight only if position breaks. Today, 6 + 4/ 7 + 3 is preferred over the possibility of 15-20; don’t under-lift. Scale push-up to full ability in each round.
Kettlebell swing reminder: Power and position govern weight- If we lose our strong hinge, back rounds, or legs fail to snap straight in the “drive” portion of the movement, adjust accordingly and continue safely.
”Short swing” simply denotes a heavy, short-range kettlebell swing with the intent of safely driving as much weight as structurally possible to just below chin height.
Airplane push-up simply begins and end with chest/ hips on the ground and hands off the ground; Maintain tension and position, and push up. If position breaks, elevate as needed and continue.
2 x 25 Kettlebell “Short swing” @ (up to) 79lb. W, 88lb. M
2 x 25 Reverse lunge box jump @ minimum 20″ W, 24″ M
Kettlebell swing and lunge may feature up to :30 sec. between 25-rep sets; Take no rest during the 25 reps.
Reverse lunge box jump: Take a full reverse lunge step, and immediately upon return to standing (with hip still loaded), jump on to target. Use the momentum from the lunge to propel the jump- coordinate the return to standing and the takeoff so as to not completely separate the lunge from the jump.
And then, violently:
50 calories Airdyne
For this drill, alternate arms + legs (full body) with arms-only (feet on pegs) in exact 5-calorie intervals, and note time to completion. Drive power from your midline, and move the bike with your whole body.
And finally, “Time under tension”:
Switch arms in 5-rep sets; If designated weight is not a cool-down weight, adjust accordingly.
