Workout of the Day-

The first workout I’ve named – “The Grip Tester”

4 Rounds for Time of:

15 Deadlifts

15 Ball Slams

15 Knees to Elbows

30 Double-Unders (w/ a Jump Rope – or 60 Single Jumps)

(Prescribed weights are 225lbs for Deadlifts and 40lbs for Ball Slams)

Carolyn Nairn (65lb Deadlift / 20lb Ball Slam / 60 Single Jumps): 17:33

Kristin Timbers (65lb Deadlift / 20 lb Ball Slam / 60 Single Jumps): 17:47

This workout was the first time we used the Olympic lifting bars to do something in my class, and you guys did a great job!  Chests stayed high, knees stayed pushed out, and lumbar curves were maintained.  That’s how you prevent injury and get stronger!

Over the next few weeks, we’ll spend some time working on technique for Double-Unders.  Once you get the hang of it and find a rhythm, it cuts down on the jump rope time significantly.

Way to move those weights around!
