Today’s stimulus is heavy grip and carry work mixed in with some midline to give the trunk/forearms a break between efforts. The workout is a chipper with increasing DB Farmers Carry intervals. The weight remains the same throughout. In between the Carries, there is an increasing volume of midline work, but as the reps increase, the complexity of the movement decreases.
Today’s workout is going to be a slow trudge. The Carries will be hard while performing each effort, but will likely need to be broken up. The midline work will focus on muscle fatigue, but not necessarily tax the heart rate as much.
The goal on this workout is to perform HEAVY Carries. No matter what weight is chosen, you should not be able to go more than 100 m at a time. Ideally, you should be performing around 50-75 m at a time to avoid failure. Shoot for 80% of your score from last week’s workout.
The V-ups or Bent Knee version should be performed in sets of 10-15. The Russian Twists and Sit-ups should be performed as one slow, unbroken set.
Shoot for around 20 minutes. Have fun!
