Home. It’s hot. Luckily the humidity whore is not around. I hope she never comes back. Oh how I love doing workouts as the mercury rises! Movement Program, we are back online! Cali was great, but Philadelphia is the cat’s meow, fo’ sho’.
Seldom do we focus on grip strength, but oddly enough I find it is one of the first things to go when doing heavy deadlifts, pullups, toes to bar, etc. Today marked a reversal of said trend. We did three rounds of max effort barbell holds from the hi hang/pockets position. Clock starts once the athlete has deadlifted the weight from the ground. No mixed grip or hook grip was allowed. Expect more grip work in the coming weeks, boys and girls. Remember, strong hands are sexy!
Following our strength portion for the day, we hit a yucky couplet with a twist. Normally burpees are bad enough, but for today I added a toes to ring at the end of this movement for extra suck factor. Oh yeah….and then we had thrusters. Definitely a super fun day! Shout out to Knick for crushing this WOD and scaling up with 95 thrusters in a solid time of 8:17!
Remember, you MUST email me if you are coming to class. If you show up and you haven’t signed up, you will receive a wonderful gift of burpees!
