Warm-up Drills
I. Row 500m (Power Refinement Curve)
II. 3 Rounds of
Max Reps or 5-7 x Pull-ups
Max Reps or 15 x Push-ups (ARMY PT STANDARDS)
Air Squat (wall therapy/bench for knee slide)
III. Mobility

Notes: Athletes working on developing their capacity to perform a deadhang Pull-up are encouraged to incorporate their normal Pull-up hand position, a wide grip version to work on developing an appropriate elbow track and shoulder girdle activation (in order to circumvent shoulders rolling forward from fatigue), and a narrow grip/chin-up (underhand) version. Try each round with a different option today and note differences and weaknesses as they present themselves. Sets have a required 5-7 rep minimum workload depending on the individual.

Impact/Focus: M.E. Back Squat
Warm-up with the percentage based sets/reps listed below (using your most recent 1-Rep maximum data to determine loads) before working up to a heavy single or new 1RM personal record.

5 x 40% (warm-up)
3 x 50% (warm-up)
3 x 60% (warm-up)

Back Squat 1-1-1-1-1

Post sets/reps/loads to comments.

For time
Row 1000m
50 x Thrusters (45/30lbs)
30 x Pull-ups

Post times to comments.

Skill Development: Pistol Practice
Athletes should spend any additional time at the end of class working on their current level of progression with Pistols. This can mean weighted pistols, unweighted, assisted to boxes (or a target), and even the ninja roll to pistol movement. Have fun freaks!
