5/8/15 “Samwise”

 In Workout of the Day


Mobility:  Hip Mobility

Skill Practice Warm Up: None.

Strength: Power Clean – Session 2

7 x 1 (7 sets of 1 reps, “across,” same weight for each set)

Superset: Ring Dip / Ring Push Up

7 x 3 (7 sets of 3 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 3 ring dips are really easy pause at the bottom of each rep for 5 seconds.
