KB Swings (53/35)
**Closing in on our front squat max (2 weeks away!) and we’re aiming for a heavy 3 today. I like to warm up with basic air squats, and then ‘no hands’ or ‘zombie’ front squat where the bar rests on the shoulders. This forces you to maintain an upright position or else the bar will fall forward. This is a great first test of ankle and thoracic mobility, taking out the front rack hold, which can be limited by tight wrists or lats. Work from the bottom up – ankles, hips, tspine, lats, and wrists to make sure you can get in a solid position before going HAM.
A lil’ “Annie” tune up – subbing swings for sit ups. Still a great core workout!
