5-8min OVHD Mobility
Workout of the Day
Every minute, on the minute, for 12 minutes:
Minute 1 – Strict Handstand Push-Ups x 6-12 reps
(if you’re proficient, aim for the high end of the range, if you don’t have them yet, perform 3 reps of negatives – a 4-6 second eccentric on each rep)
Minute 2 – L-Seated Dead Hang x 30-45 seconds
(assume the bottom of an L-Pull-Up with heels above horizontal plane of buttocks and hang from the pull-up bar holding position for 30-45 seconds)
Minute 3 – Unbroken Double-Unders x 40 reps
Same as last week…just want to see that everyone is improving and able to follow the progression.
Every two minutes, for 16 minutes (8 sets):
Push Press + Split Jerk
(Pause for 3-4 seconds in the split jerk receiving position before recovering.)
Rest 2 minutes
Build over the course of the 8 sets.
Strict Overhead Press
* Set 1 – 5 reps @ 50%
* Set 2 – 5 reps @ 60%
* Set 3 – 5 reps @ 70%
* Set 4 – 3 reps @ 85-90%
* Set 5 – 3 reps @ 85-90%
* Set 6 – 3 reps @ 85-90%
* Set 7 – 3 reps @ 85-90%
* Set 8 – 10 reps @ 75%
Rest 2 minutes between sets.
Choose the same load for all four sets of 3 reps. The load used should be challenging to successfully press for three, but if you have more than one failed rep it is too heavy.
Every 8 minutes, for 24 minutes (3 sets) of:
Row 1000 Meters
20 Burpees Over the Erg
20 Push Press (115/75 lbs)
SCHEDULING NOTE – If you’re looking for an off-season competition to test yourself, the Kill Cliff Granite Games is a great competition. It’s well-organized, well-timed and the events are good, safe tests of fitness. Many of our athletes will be participating, so accordingly, I will be programming the Kill Cliff Granite Games QualifierWorkouts each Friday for the next several weeks. I encourage anyone with an interest in competing to get registered.
