  • *shoulder width stance 
  • *lead with hips 
  • *Reverse when belly slightly touches upper thigh 
  • + work up to 3 sets of 3 using the same weight 
  • + 2 minutes rest 

 

Yoke bar this time! Welp this one did not take as much weight as the good ol Marrs barrrrr. I ended up with I think a plate quarter dimeish type situation on there that one is always a doozy but it’s SO GOOD FOR YOU.  I also spent a lot of time yelling at everyone to go faster since we were 3 people and a 2 minute rest period.

 

Then spent some time helping/admonishing our poor new intern who is new to box squatting. In my defense, I was very nice. Probably too nice. Because then everyone else complained that I’m not that nice to them because I said he was on the right track. Jeez. Kids these days.

 


 

  • Glute Ham Raise 
  •  
  • + SAME WEIGHT AND REPS AS LAST WEEK 
  • *Weighted, using the same weight for all four sets 
  • + 4 sets of 6 reps with no more than 2 minutes between sets 
  • + SAME WEIGHT AND REPS AS LAST WEEK  

 

I DON’T REMEMBER WHAT WEIGHT I USED LAST WEEK I THINK IT WAS A 30 SO I USED THAT. JESUS STOP YELLING IN THE INSTRUCTIONS DAVE.

 


 

  • Inverse Leg Curl 
  • + 3 sets of 20 reps with no more than 2 minutes rest 

 

Thankfully after our one week of trying to figure out what weight to use I was all set for this week and didn’t need 20 min experimentation.

 


 

 

  • Pull Down Abs s/s Hanging Leg Raise 
  • + 4 sets of 15 reps on each movements. 
  • + Zero rest between pull down abs and hanging leg raise and no more than 2 minutes between series  

 

15+15+15+15+15+15+15+15 is a lot.  You can break a board over my Bruce Lee-esque powerbelly abs.

 


 

Reverse Hypers (loose)

JUST THE WAY YOUR MOTHER LIKES IT TREBEK.

  • + SAME WEIGHT AND REPS AS LAST WEEK 
  • + use momentum and go very heavy

We put all the plates we could fit on the reverse hyper. That many.

 


 

  • Hip Ab/Adduction with Glute Kick 
  • All three movements do for sets of 15 with no rest between sets. 2 minutes between series.

THIS IS WHERE THE REAL STRENGTH WORK HAPPENS. CHAMPIONS ARE MADE ON THE INNIE/OUTTIE/GLUTE KICKBACK TRISET.
