Good Morning All,
For those who have known me for any length of time outside this blog, you know that I am a huge advocate of 'just do something' physical. I woke up this morning full of intent to go for a run. However, my calves are still sore to the point where running would have not been productive (for my purposes). Instead, I did the following workout, at home, in my bedroom:
50 Hip Lifts
30 Air Squats
50 Shoulder Retractions w/ Bands
100 Band Curls
100 Band Lateral Raises
This took me about ten minutes to complete as I added in some stretching. The point is, even though I was physically derailed from my plan, I still did something. Take that first step and just do something.
Morning Friends! Wrapped up this workout earlier today. Definitely got the neuro-muscular system going! This is a great am workout as all the exercises are done at sub maximal weight and at maximum velocity. This requires a tremendous amount of neuro-muscular action and essentially 'wakes up' the body! Here goes!
Reverse Hypers- 2 sets of 20 reps
Standing Crunches w/ either heavy resistance bands or pulldown machine- 2 sets 30
AIM Trainer- 4 sets of 50*
Hip mobility (step overs, swings, etc)
Squats- 5 sets of 5 at 50% of 1RM. Also, if you have them, use heavy resistance bands
Hang Snatches w/ Overhead Squat 4 sets of 3 reps
Hang Clean w/ Front Squat 3 sets of 3 reps
Overhead Split Squats 20 reps/ leg
TRX Leg Curls 20 reps
Jump rope 100
Went for an am short distance run.
15 minutes of 85%-90% sprints to get the hips loosened. Focus on stable core, movement from lower body.
2 sets of 15degree pull-ups
