(Specialty warm-up: 20 mace front pendulum, 5L, 5R mace shovel, 5 rocking chair with bumper plate) 30 Mace shovel + overhead press @ (minimum) 10kg. W, 12kg M (1 + 1 = 1) 30 Mace 360 @ (minimum) 8kg. W, 10kg. M 60 Mace front pendulum @ (minimum) 12kg. W, 14kg. M 60 Tire smash @ 6/ 8lb. W, 10lb. M Complete movements in order listed. Switch sides/ direction as desired, being sure to match left-to-right at set-end. Focus on mechanics, mind your mind, and move with intent.
Shovel + press: Attempt to make both shovel and press as challenging as possible, by adjusting hand width, mace weight, velocity/ violence of shovel, and angle of press.
Minimum: The baseline we have established through practice and observation. It is certainly not a demotion to work *at* it, but we should aspire to exceed it.
Note: Unless there’s money on the line, position and execution always govern weight/ output. If tire smash is a wiggly, flailing, un-powerful mess, it is immediately adjusted to a powerful and accurate 1-arm kettlebell swing.
Then: 25 Rocking chair @ 35lb. W, 45lb. M (use whatever you can move safely and efficiently) 25 calories Airdyne/ equivalent (arms and legs) (Immediately into) 5 aggressive minutes of: 5 Rocking chair @ 15lb. W, 25lb. M (use bumper plate) 5 calories Airdyne/ equivalent (arms and legs) Strong, steady breathing and constant movement; Complete 25/ 25, and then hunt the 5 minutes. Accumulate as many total reps/ calories as possible. If interspersing riders on the bikes creates traffic jams, don’t do it; Hard, efficient transitions are a valuable part of the work. Wait until someone is done, savor the rest, and use it as fuel to move faster. And then, immediately: 10 Pull-up 30 calories Airdyne/ equivalent 300 Jumprope 30 Airplane push-up 10 Pull-up/ Chin-up/ Mixed grip Airdyne and jumprope: Sprint, not a jog. Pull-up: Short rest as needed to keep range of motion full, and quality high. No wiggling. Use assistance as needed; Scaling is only a compromise if we concede position, or effort. Airplane push-up simply begins and end with chest/ hips on the ground and hands off the ground; Maintain tension, set position, and move with intent. Add a plyometric element to the push-up as skill level dictates. And finally, “Time under tension”:
