In it together. Stronger together.
For a total of 3 rounds, work 45 seconds on with 15 seconds to rest and transition to the next station. Focus on quality work at each station and watch videos for movement demos.
*Bent Over Raises: In a bent over position with core tight, alternate through the “Y” and “T” positions slowly with control. Keep shoulders down and back through movement. This movement is effective with just body weight. Option to use a pair of soup cans for added resistance. See video!
*Pressing Snatch Balance: Using a PVC pipe, broomstick, or towel. Using a Snatch grip, press your body down into position. Move slowly with both the squat and the press. Once in the bottom stand up and repeat. See video!
“Death By”: Thrusters and Burpees
EMOTM: Perform the following; (10 Rounds)
Single Arm Thruster X 2 reps – Video
Burpee over Equipment X 1 rep – Video
Single Arm Thruster X 4 reps
Burpee over Equipment X 2 reps
Min 3: 6 + 3
Min 4: 8 + 4
For 10 rounds, every minute on the minute, complete the work above. Start with 2 reps of the Single arm thrusters and 1 rep of the Burpee over equipment. Increase reps by 2 on the thrusters and 1 on the burpee each round. Complete the work as fast as possible allowing the remainder of each minute for recovery. If you get to a round you cannot complete, rest the next minute and start your next minute 2 rounds lower and stick with that number for the remaining rounds left in the workout!
For example, if you get to Minute 7 and do not complete, rest minute 8 and for minute 9 and 10 continue with the rep scheme from round 5 or 6.
*Single Arm Thruster: Using a KB, DB, or weighted backpack. Use anything in the house that is challenging and mimics the movement pattern. Ideally your equipment should be moderate in weight. Alternate arms as needed.
