5/11/15 “Peregrin”

 In Workout of the Day


Mobility: Hip Mobility.

Skill Practice Warm Up: None.

Strength: Power Clean – Session 3

6 x 2 (6 sets of 2 reps, “across,” same weight for each set)

Superset: Ring Dip / Ring Push Up

6 x 4 (6 sets of 4 reps, if doing Ring push ups stay at the same angle)

Power Cleans and Ring Dips are the new strength focus. Based off your heaviest power clean start around 70 – 80% of that number. These should feel light and have great technique. Even if the weight feels light don’t catch it too high because as the weight increases over the next 6 weeks you will want to feel comfortable catching the bar in a lower power position. If 4 ring dips are really easy pause at the bottom of each rep for 5 seconds.
