Workout for Monday, August 24th
We are working on explosive power today combined with anaerobic endurance. Aim for maximum aggression with each movement and really give it your all!
Each round will be 1 minute of continuous activity (20secs of each exercise) followed by 1 minute of rest. We are aiming at longer rest periods so you can keep the intensity and quality of the movements very high.
Med ball slams: While standing you will reach up above your head as high as you can and then explosively slam the ball down. Pick it up and repeat.
Jump Squats: you should be aiming to achieve near maximum height each jump. This will be done without the medicine ball. Focus on good technique and landing correctly.
Atomic sit-ups (with the medicine ball): These are an explosive version of the sit-up where you go from lying flat to standing up. Watch the video here for an example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-VxcKx2vLac
Note: You will need a medicine ball or slam ball weighing between 10-20lbs.
