By September 16, 2019Workout of the Day

Tuesday

Warm-Up.

Two sets of:
Perform 30 seconds each of the following movements…
*Station 1 – Banded Palloff Hold (standing, squatting, kneeling – mix it up!)
*Station 2 – Banded Lateral Monster Walk
*Station 3 – Banded Squats
*Station 4 – Side Plank Hold
*Station 5 – Russian Step-Ups

Move through this with as little rest between movements as possible. It should take between 12-15 minutes in total.

Then…

A.
Take 20 minutes to build to today’s 3-RM Tempo Front Squat @ 42X1

As you build to this weight, perform singles or doubles at this tempo, then when you reach a weight you think would challenge you for 3 reps, attempt it. Show control in the 4-second descent, pause for 2-seconds in the bottom position and explode straight up – no bounce out of the bottom.

B.
“Nitrous”
For time:
1000 Meter Row
50 Thrusters (95/65 lbs)

This is a new Invictus benchmark workout that will test your ability to push the pace and hold on all the way through the finish line. Nothing complex, just a pure test of effort and pain tolerance. Enjoy!

Boom Lite

Warm-Up.

Two sets of:
Perform 30 seconds each of the following movements…
*Station 1 – Banded Palloff Hold (standing, squatting, kneeling – mix it up!)
*Station 2 – Banded Lateral Monster Walk
*Station 3 – Banded Squats
*Station 4 – Side Plank Hold
*Station 5 – Russian Step-Ups

Move through this with as little rest between movements as possible. It should take between 12-15 minutes in total.

Then…

A.
Three sets of:
Front-Racked Barbell Split Squats x 4-5 reps each @ 4211
Rest 60 seconds
Rear-Foot Elevated Dumbbell Romanian Deadlift x 4-5 reps each @ 6011
Rest 60 seconds

For the split squats, allow the knee to drive forward of the toes, such that your hamstring is resting atop your calf…but keep your full foot on the ground. We’re working on mobility as well as quad strength. For the romanian deadlifts, you’ll set-up just like a Bulgarian Split Squat, but keep only a slight bend in the knee and reach down to perform a romanian deadlift.

For time:
1000 Meter Row
