Subversive Fitness: Day 122 of 360

Sometimes burpees just sneak up on you and when they do there’s no escaping them.

Day 122 of 360

Kettlebell push press/ push jerk:

Using warm-up sets of no more than 2-3 reps per arm, and keeping total reps under 30 (15L, 15R) climb to and find your 1RM push press/ push jerk. Controlled, organized lock-out constitutes a completed rep, and as always, position and execution govern weight.

Then, 7 minutes of the following kettlebell complex:

1 Kettlebell swing clean
1 1-arm kettlebell swing
1 Kettlebell snatch

1 + 1 + 1 = 1 rep. Goal is fluid, seamless transition from movement to movement, and hand-to-hand switches from side-to-side. Alternate arms as desired. Weight today is self-scaled and moderate; The 7-minute set should not require more than 3-5 rest periods at no more than :15 sec. each.

And 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 finally, “Time under tension”:

Anchored squat @ 15lb. W, 25lb. M

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.

Ultimately, work until you feel you have made sufficient cool-down/ mobility progress.
