Weight today is self-scaled and challenging- have a back-up plan in sight if position breaks with initial chosen weight.
Make minor weight adjustments as needed to complete strong, uninterrupted sets.
Today, any drop from the bar results in a punishment.
Count reps in all rounds- keep effort high and pace strong, and attempt to match throughout.
Pace is not a substitute for position, even in simple movements.
If a consistent sticking point is identified, add a 2/1000 pause to each rep and improve the position.
The secret to perpetual success is to perpetually take chances on new ideas, even if what you’re doing now is working.
Kick it off with kettlebells and keep going until you hit squats.
If designated kettlebell swing weight does not pose a significant challenge, add a “Power swing” component by dragging the weight down just as viciously as you drive it up.
Today, you're going to climb to a new 5RM kettlebell short swing using warm-up sets of no more than 10 reps before adjusting the weight.
Move in organized, powerful positions, and attempt no rest. If position breaks in either movement, take three breaths, right the ship, and continue with quality.
Work to “true” failure (loss of physical positioning) not “relative” failure (loss of mental endurance).
Stand strong and organized- tension helps build strength, provided we stay engaged in the process.
If sets require interruption, make as minor an adjustment as needed and complete the next uninterrupted.
When you’re driven by boundless curiosity, the last thing you’re going to do is waste minutes not learning.
Goal today is achieving a quick, seamless transition from movement to movement, and from floor to standing.
Execute every rep of every movement today with a focus on strong posture and rotational power.
