Remember: “practice makes perfect, and perfect practice makes permanent”.
As always please listen to your body. If it ain’t on, it ain’t on!! rest and mobilise!
Not long till All-Stars !!!!
Tuesday 5th August
A): 10 Min EMOM of: 2-4 Strict Handstand Push Up
(Scale to 20 sec Handstand Holds on the Minute if unable to get HSPU)
(Note: Great little piece to build ‘upside down strength’ in. If you’re aiming to participate in the Allstars then work your way nearer to the ground to a flat surface. Or if this is not an attainable goal in time for the comp then do the scaled version to practice getting long holds in).
B): BB Bent Over Row, 5 x 10, Building.
Note: Important movement! We want you to be a well rounded athlete, so get on this! This will be a valuable tool in helping get nearer to unassisted pull ups.
Get a Tight & straight back throughout. Retract those shoulder blades (keep the traps at bay, don’t scrunch & hunch your shoulders!). Bar MUST make contact with the body every reps.
Please respect all movements and do them to the best of your ability. Swallow your pride, if you cannot do a move because its too heavy then lighten the load! If you cannot get the technique right then either grab a coach or call it a day there.
