This SWOD is from Tuesday…..
It still has me WRECKED!
I get emails from some you asking for more videos of the stuff that I do for my personal workouts. Well, this one is as good as any. This is truly the type of thing that I love hitting up when I’m at the gym.
This workout had a couple cool components that made it enjoyable for me. First, the warmup was a relatively high-volume, body weight session. It’s come to my attention that we get a ton of volume with heavy loads, but rarely do we hit high-rep sets of gymnastics movements. So in order to turn that around a bit, I threw in 60 pushups and 60 situps right at the beginning of the session. This definitely got a warm, but was also something new.
Secondly, and my favorite part of the session, was the relatively heavy loads we were using. As you all know by now, I love moving heavy shit! So, as you’ll see in the video below, I am right at home knocking out heavy low-bar back squats and unbroken sets of heavy hang cleans…..Which brings me to my third point of interest – SPEED!
This may come to surprise you, but when your goal is to move as much weight as you can during an unbroken set of 5 Hang Cleans……You MUST be fast! There is no other way to make it happen.
So without further delay…..here’s some footage from Tuesday’s session.
