I decided to put in some focus on individual exercises today. It was another fine lunchtime so I was outside for the warm up. Time was limited so I introduced an old favourite....
I performed one of my rare iron exercises; One Arm Dumbell Snatch from Floor. As I have maintained previously, taking a weight from the ground and lifting it above the head is a fantastic exercise which works a whole chain of muscles. (I was still feeling this in my legs on Sunday).Warm Up (5 mins)
1) One Arm Dumbell Snatch from Floor (10kgx12, 16kgx8, 20kgx4, 22kgx4 28kgx2)
2) Wall Walks (4x5reps)
3) Planche (15s, 15s, 5s, 15s)
4) Lever (15s, 15s, 5s, 15s)
5) Cuts (30s per side)
The planche and lever are two exercises that truly work just about the whole body. Maximal effort in minimal time.
