Let’s do ladder strength couplets on Tuesday!

Why wouldn’t we?

Let’s continue on our quest for gains at The Training Room and life!

ROW for HOPE is Sunday!

There are STILL some incomplete teams which means there are some stragglers out there who have NOT registered yet.

If this is YOU, go here NOW to register.


After Monday’s cardio deck of cards, Tuesday is a strength day, and we have ladder couplets in the rotation.

10-1 couplets alternating between 2 movements..

This can be done with a partner or solo.

Complete one ladder set then move on to the next.

Couplet 1 (ladder 10-1 reps)

  • Low back stuff (swings, hinges, back extensions, reverse hypers, swmmers)
  • Push ups (go slowly or add bands or chains for weight)

Couplet 2 (ladder 10-1 reps)

  • Goblet squats
  • ring rows,band rows or pullups

Couplet 3 (ladder 20-2)

  • Cardio calories or kettlebell sport stuff (snatch, jerk or long cycle)
  • Burpee, squat thrust or slam ball/ sledge hits

After your session, take the time for a stretch.

Do this consistently and your body will thank you.

Have a great week in and out of the gym.

Here’s a follow along strength session from the archives.
