Day 247 of 360

Pendlay row: 5 x 3 @ as heavy as possible in each (minimum 85% of 2RM)

Rest as needed between sets. Although directive is as heavy as possible, sound position and a full range of motion always govern weight.

Then:

1-arm kettlebell row: 3 x 7L, 7R @ (up to) 60% of heaviest lift above

Ambitious, powerful, uninterrupted sets. Rest as needed between. When scheme is listed as “3 x 5L, 5R”, it always refers to “Sets” x “Reps”.

And then, as quickly as possible:

25 Kettlebell high pull @ minimum 1/2 BW
25 Slam ball @ 15lb. W, 25lb. M
25 Jumping pull-up
25 Abmat sit-up @ 1/2 BW
25 calories Airdyne
1 minute rest
25 calories Airdyne

Take as little rest as possible. If needed, keep it short and specific (3 breaths or less). If designated weight compromises position/ execution, adjust accordingly and continue safely.

And finally, “Time under tension”:

25 Dowel partial pull-over +
25 cat/ cow stretch

Partial pull-over is active cool-down and should be performed in organized positions- only pull dowel over to point of position break, maintain a brief hold, and repeat. The goal is opening up the upper body after a pulling/ rotation day, and improving the position for next time.
