Mobility: Hip & Ankle Mobility.
Skill Practice Warm Up: None.
Strength: Power Clean – Session 6
6 x 2 (6 sets of 2 reps, “across,” same weight for each set)
Superset: Ring Dip / Ring Push Up
6x 4 (6 sets of 4 reps, if doing Ring push ups stay at the same angle)
If you didn’t increase on Tuesday add 5 to 10 pounds for the next two sessions (6×2, 5×3), if you think you started too light add a little more but you shouldn’t be more than 80 – 90% of your max. We will run through this cycle of 7×1, 6×2, 5×3 three more times. If 4 ring dips are really easy add some weight with a dumbbell between your thighs or start to pause at the bottom of each rep for a few seconds. If you are doing ring push ups try and lower your angle.
Metabolic Conditioning: “Bone Rattler”- As many rounds as possible in 6 minutes.
3 Dumbbell hang squat cleans (Performance: 45lbs, Athletic*: 30lbs, Health: 20lbs)
3 Dumbbell hang power cleans (same)
12 Box jumps (Performance: 24”, Athletic*: 20”, Health: 20” step ups)
*Women’s “As Prescribed” weights and reps (Rx)
Scaling Guide: 4 – 8 rounds.
Scale Up: 55/35.
Coaching Tips: Focus on using a lot of hip pop to get the dumbbells up. Keep the torso upright and save your low back! Avoid ‘curling’ the weights and using your arms. Practice jump up/step downs unless you plan on competing soon (and you may want to spend a bit of extra time on Achilles mobility).
