Day 52/360: Wolf Brigade Subversive Fitness
If you have tried these workouts before skip this part and go straight to next section with today's training program. if it's your first time seeing this then, here's the stuff you should check out:
- It all started on Wolf Brigade Day 1/360, if you want our point of origin.
- You can find movement videos here, and here, they will be continuously updated as we go along.
- And make sure you read the Standards and Practices document first
Positional and mechanical improvement:
Beginner/ Intermediate: Medicine ball throw, mace front pendulum and back pendulum, mace shovel, kettlebell Figure-8
Advanced: Mace 360, 10-2, varial, piroutette swing
At skill work weights and with the guidance of a qualified trainer, practice several movements listed above and make improvement in the details of each. Start with the basic variations of each and add weight/ difficulty as appropriate. Note: Never make the mental mistake of thinking you’re too advanced for skill work in any realm.
Then, as quickly as possible:
Minimal rest, strong focus on position and power. As always, utilize “relative tension” when moving the mace- establish and stabilize positioning, and then let momentum do its work.
And then, 4 rounds of:
Powerful, organized movement, aggressive pace, and no extra rest; Simple should not equal casual.
And finally, “Time under tension”:
Performed passively, this is not an effective piece- lock into a hinge position with tension and focus as if it were weighted, and do some work. 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.
