Rest as needed between sets. If sets require interruption, make as minor an adjustment as needed and complete the next uninterrupted. When scheme is listed as “1 x 5″, it always refers to “Sets” x “Reps”. Reminder: Position and range of motion always govern weight.
Today: Perform 3 pull-up (full-range and scaled to ability) and 5L, 5R 1-arm 360 (or 10 light kettlebell halo) immediately following each set of Pendlay row. Rest as needed once the three movements are complete.
Kettlebell swing: If position breaks, adjust one interval down and continue safely.
3/1000 row: In this variation, we hold for a full 3/1000 count in the top position- whether it be chest-to-bar, chest-through-rings/ rope, our goal is keeping the chest even with the hands for the full count on all reps.
And then, “Time under tension”:
One-arm bodyweight row hold (Use barbell + overhand grip for hold) + 25 Dowel partial pull-over
Brace as needed with non-working arm, and switch arms as needed. 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.
