5 rounds of:
4-position kettlebell squat drill:
3 + 5 + 3 + 5 = 1 round. Goal is fluid, seamless transitions from front to back, and left to right. Each set should pose a significant challenge weight-wise- weakest lift/ transition governs weight.
Then, 5 minutes of:
“Burpees from the bottom”
”Burpees from the bottom” simply begin and end with your chest on the floor. Today, trainer will call out a specific number of reps and intersperse varied durations of rest between them, and athletes will remain with chest on the ground ready to go until directed (very similar to our sprint start).
In a group, completing the designated number quickly will lead to a few extra breaths of rest between sets. If a set needs to be skipped due to fatigue, perform 20 additional burpees when the drill is over.
And then, for max calories:
One minute Airdyne sprint
Breathe, focus, and drive. This is a sprint, not a jog- no pacing. Goal is matching output from previous outing; Matching effort should go without saying.
And finally “Time under tension”:
Lift and hold in strong, organized kettlebell rack position. 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.
Stand strong and organized- tension helps build strength, provided we stay engaged in the process.
Sit-ups: Break as needed to maintain integrity of movement; No lazy reps in either variation.
