Working up to a heavy 60m Yoke Carry.
The Yoke is not for the meek. It’s heavy. It’s nasty. It hurts. But in the end it will make you a force to be reckoned with.
3x Axle Deadlifts + 3 Steps. Go as heavy as possible for 15m.
Zac asked me today what the Yoke was good for. Well, in my opinion there is no better way to train the nervous system; no better way to experience an intensity/load that you wouldn’t otherwise be able to experience. The load is so heavy the abdominal wall can’t help but fire. In essence, it’s one of the best core exercises there is, second only to the OLY lifts.
Working through Thrusters.
In the time remaining in the minute do as many Double Unders as possible. But be careful, you have three sets and only one minute to rest between. So find your groove and try not to overextended yourself. Speed and consistency are key.
Something new I’m playing with: The Prowler March. The goal is not to go as fast as possible. The goal is to actually go as slow as possible but still keep the Prowler moving. These will be back on Tag Team Tuesday. There’s something special about simple, grinding exercises. Sometimes the most effective exercises are the simplest.
It’s gotta be fun too. Susan adding insult to injury on Jenny last set.
