2 Steady Rounds: 10 KB Taters (53/35), 20 Plank Plus
KB Tater: swing the KB to eye level and release the handle, catching the KB in a goblet squat position and squatting it. That’s 1 rep. As you stand, flip the handle of the KB back into your hands and perform your next swing. A ‘Plank Plus’ is a plank where you lift the opposite arm/opposite leg straight out in front/behind for a brief second before returning to a plank. That’s one rep.
Mobility Recommendation: Couch stretch 1:30 per side
We are looking for 3 VERY uncomfortable sets of 15. These reps should not sacrifice a solid midline for more weight, instead they should aim for more control. By the end of each set you should be questioning if your hamstrings will ever “feel good” again.
