In the Gym October 29th


10:00 Warm up
2 x 8 shoulder openers
2 x 5 cuban press
work on mobility
3 x 5 wall squats
3 x 6 goblet squats – deep, hip opening, focus on posture
2 x 10 KB swings
Warm up to Back Squat with bar + chains (don’t go too heavy; see below; can use 15# bar with chains if more appropriate for athlete)
5x Isometric-Dynamic Back Squats
How this works: pause for 3-4 seconds in four positions on the lower: top of squat (standing), 1/3 squat depth, 2/3 squat depth, full squat depth (quads parallel or close); after last pause, recruit glutes for fast acceleration up, feet leaving the floor if possible)
Can partner up, one person rests while the other person is completing the reps; should be focused and heavy enough that they need the rest!
If not in partners, rest 1-2 minutes between sets
5 rounds through
12x Med Ball Sit Throws (partners)
30sec Ring Support
5 rounds, rest as needed
Then, if time:
2000m ski – 200m segments in partners;
One person skis 200m and quickly hands the paddles to teammate, then teammate does 200m; switch on and off until they hit 2000m. Go fast for time.
Cool Down, stretch, foam roll…
