5 x 5 @ 75% of 2RM
1 x 15 @ 50% (use double overhand grip)
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 15″, it always refers to “Sets” x “Reps”. Reminder: Position and execution always govern weight.
30 Hand-to-hand kettlebell swing @ (up to) 1/2 BW
50 calories Airdyne
Switch hands each rep, and attempt no rest during. If chosen weight breaks position, or causes frequent interruption, adjust one interval down and continue safely.
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.
Airdyne: Today, alternate arms + legs 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 then, “Time under tension”:
50 Hollow rock (10 x 5, or 5 x 10 each rep perfect) + 50 Cat/ cow stretch
Break during hollow rock as needed to maintain integrity and usefulness of movement; No lazy reps.
