Day 304 Of 360

6 rounds of:

 

3L, 3R Kettlebell push press
6 Mace 360/ Kettlebell halo
3 Chin-up
0:30 sec. rest

 

Weights for kettlebell push press and mace 360/ kettlebell halo are self-scaled and should be challenging in each round. Adjust as needed during: 30 sec. rest and be ready to work again when it ends.

 

Scale chin-up to full ability in each round.

 

 

Advanced suggestions include:

 

Weighted, L-chin-up, chest-to-bar, negative. No kip.

 

Then, 5 rounds of:

 

1 minute Airdyne (note calories/ max RPM)
20 Push-up (on a 1-minute descending clock- time remaining is rest)
5 breaths rest (max :20 sec.)

 

Strong, steady pace on Airdyne- aim for 75% of max RPM for as long as possible in each round. If push-up mechanics or range of motion fail, scale accordingly to ensure both progress and safety; Leave the ego out of the equation- excellent, scaled push-ups are far better than crappy, broken “unscaled” ones.

 

And then, “Time under tension”:

 

Arm bar stretch review and practice:
Minimum 3 x 0:30 sec. L, 0:30 sec. R

 

Position governs weight. The goal is an organized, slow stretch/ strengthening just past normal end range. In order to ensure the position functions when we need it at intensity or velocity, we have to access and strengthen it in a controlled, specific manner.
