Tuesday – May 21, 2011 – Bernadette warming up for overhead squats
Bernadette getting warmed up for overhead squats. You’ll notice that she has her thumb around the bar. With back squats, the thumb around the bar is optional. If you are going to jerk the bar overhead it is a good idea to put your thumb around the bar before you un-rack it.
Skill Practice Warm Up: Legless rope climbs. 2 reps going as high as you dare. If you cannot climb the ropes yet, do 4 rope lay downs keeping your body as tight in a plank as possible.
Workout: In 12 minutes –
Then max rounds –
Double unders (Advanced*: 30 reps, Intermediate: 20 counting attempts, Novice: 10 attempts)
10 ring rows (Feet on a box, even with the rings. Full extension to shoulders even with the rings)

(Not that it changes the point of the article, one thing I did notice is that the ‘stats’ for the ladies don’t seem to match the photo. The photo shows ladies taller than someone next to them, but their height listed says otherwise. -jj)
