Estimated time to complete: 2 hours (including 20 minute warm-up and aerobic work)
Lower Body Warm-up:
Keep this quality work. Focus on tension and getting enough work per section to create a positive change. This only benefits us if it’s consistently done over the six weeks.
Foot Lacrosse smash – about 2 minutes each foot
PNF Calf Stretch
- Back Squat: 4×8 @ 70% – rest 3-5 minutes between sets. Belt/shoes/sleeves. EXPLODE. So much speed.
- Deadlift: 3×8 @ 70% – Sets 1 and 2 not TNG, reset. Set 3 can be touch and go, but movement should be flawless with a great lockout. Rest 3-5 minutes between sets
- Tempo Front Squat: 8×3 – rest periods can be shorter here if desired. Tempo 31X2. Percentage is variable here, but start at 70% and go by feel, but finding a weight that is heavy but that you can still control the tempo is key. . 3 seconds down, 1 second pause, explode up, 2 seconds at the top. DON’T BE A WEENER AND RELAX INTO/IN THE BOTTOM. Tension, baby. Torso alignment should be flawless and not change coming out of the bottom.
Back/Abs: 4 sets – Max GH Raises, rest 1 minute, then max weighted back extensions (around ten reps, aim for a heavier load than earlier in the week). Rest 1 minute then max weighted supine GH hold. (sub straight leg DB deadlift for GH Raises/Back extension if you don’t have access to a bench. Lsit/Lhang/Hollow hold sub for GH hold)
1 minute max burpees
-Perform a heart rate primer here:
Every minute on the minute perform 4 – 6 burpees as fast as possible (should get at least 30s rest). Rest until recovered, then perform. GO SO HARD BURPEES PUKE YESSSS
then go directly into….
