Mastering Body Weight Movement

You know that we like to preach the importance of mastering body weight movement before loading up with weight.

Adding weight to dysfunctional movements (bad form) can lead to disaster (injury) and this is why we are constantly practicing body weight movement.

Wednesday is one of those days at The Training Room!

We will focus on mostly body weight movement in fifteen second intervals.

We like to use 15 second intervals using as close to perfect technique as possible with each repetition.

Couplets (alternating between 2 exercises) will allow for recovery in one area while working another and will also allow us to get a ton of work in a short amount of time without burning us out.

Never go to muscle failure on any movement as this will lead to

15/15 x 5 rounds of each of 3 couplets

Couplet 1: Intensity can be increased by adding bands or chains or by adjusting leverage and going slower.

Couplet 2:

  • Prison squat (see the picture above) or Prison Squat jump
  • Knees to chest or sliding/Power wheel/hanging knees to chest

Couplet 3

  • broad jumps, tire jumps or heavy swings
  • crawl, crab, or sit through

Go through this entire thing 2 times.

Have a great Wednesday!
