Week #48 – Day #1

Last week for this workout – set some new records

Not including warm-up exercises, this workout is made up of 4 HIRT circuits.

I want you to move as quickly as possible between sets, keeping rest periods to a minimum

 

WORKOUT WARM-UP

Circles – Starting with the ankles and moving all the way up to your neck, gently make circles with all of your joints – 10 revolutions each joint in each direction

Dead Bug – Push your lower back into the floor and articulate your arms & legs as in the video. 1 set of as many reps as possible with your lower back pushed into the floor. When your back starts to arch…STOP

1 Arm Swing Snatch – 25 reps per arm  – Dumbbell or kettlebell – choose a light weight – the goal is to warm-up
