Workout 3 | Week 2 - Day 1
Welcome to week 2, how are we feeling? Have you checked your readiness to train?
A little soreness and tiredness is expected, but that is NOT the goal, the goal is make incremental forward progress in strength, mobility and endurance. Training in too fatigued a state can be detrimental to this progress.
Today’s training brings in a new and highly valuable movement, the Turkish Get Up.
This is a high skill movement with several stages to go through, in today’s session we will only be working the first stages, known as the Half Get Up. Be sure to watch the videos carefully and practice without a weight at first, then begin your set.
You will need:
Enough floor space to lie down
Control your movement in all these drills, with the exception of the swing, everything should be done in a very controlled manner, as if you could pause the movement at any given moment.
This is especially important of the 1/12 rep squat to avoid bouncing through the movement, and on the ½ Get Up which is quite a detailed motion that relies on taking your time and exploring your weak points within the movement.
Take you time through this one, try to move with the highest quality you can muster.
