Always feeling good after a plyometric day! Just started to get into weighted single leg box jumps. Start with just body weight before progressing to weights. Be sure to “cycle” that free leg!! Who’s trying this one?!
Try adding isometric training into your regiment this week! I like adding these “Single leg deadlift iso’s” towards the end of my training session. I’ll hold for 10-15 seconds. The key is to focus on driving through your heel and pulling the bar through the low rack. Be sure to keep your chest up with a flat back. I will superset them with lateral bench hops and weighted planks for recovery. Let me know what you think!! .
•SL DL iso 3x :10-15 EL
w/ lateral bench hops x4
active recovery: weighted plank 1:00
Bulgarian Split squats are probably my favorite exercise as it challenges your entire body. Balance, core strength, posterior chain, and leg strength. Hanging weights to the bar adds a whole new dynamic as you really have to focus on EVERY REP. No music on this one just to show how “locked in” I had to be. Who’s trying this one out?! 💪🏼💪🏼
It would be easy to say it’s too hot to get it in. Don’t get me wrong, I wanted to say that today. But then I thought, all good things come outside of your comfort zone. I challenge you all to get lace them shoes up and get out of your comfort zone this week! #smallvictories 💯
There are times when you’re gonna want to quit because of the pain. A trained mind will accept the “suck” and keep pushing. Learn to love the process and know the long term approach. 💯
