Dynamic Effort Lower
4min: Wall squats and variations (banded, leg crossing over opposite knee). Use this as time to open your hips in preparation for the 4min squat test to follow.
4min: Squat test. Goal is for everyone to hold the bottom of the squat for all 4 minutes. If the Athlete takes a break have them increase their time to accumulate 4min. Over the next 3 weeks we will gradually increase our time in the bottom of a squat, peaking at 10min. If you can comfortably hold this position the Coach will have additional mobility suggestions to better your positioning.
Sumo Deadlift (6×5 @ 65%, speed pulls )
Speed pulls denotes the rate at which the sets are completed, less than 90sec. per set. Athletes can pair or triple up to share gear and rotate quickly through tire changes so that this can be completed in 15min or less. During the movement demo sped time reviewing the bottom/set up position of the sumo deadlift. Many Athletes start without their hamstring inguaged, jerking the barbell off the ground to feel tension. Athletes need to create tension on the barbell and throughout their body to lift the weight off the ground, not jerk it.
