*P1 performs all Tabata Kick-backs, then P2. Repeat in the same way with Tabata Leg Throws.
Today’s single-modality strength session will leave you feeling pretty taxed as we have a high volume of heavy lifts. The intention of today’s class is to work sets of 4 at the same weight across the board. We are carving out 40 total minutes of squat prep, warm-up, and execution. This means we want you to work up to something that is near a 4-rep max and maintain that for the entirety of the 5 sets.
Today’s session includes the first of our yoga sessions. The emphasis is hip prep, which will be a great lead into the squat emphasis. Some of these yoga complexes will move and flow, while others will be more static. You’ll see some complexes have athletes passing through certain yoga positions that include a wide ROM to help prep for the movements of the class and help increase balance and proprioception. Others are intended on relaxation and improving mobility.
The session also includes a partner Optional Finisher at the end, which will get your heart rate up a bit while taxing the midline.
The goal of today is to be HEAVY. We want each set of 4 to be near maximal and illicit about 3 min. of rest before performing the next set. Aim to perform your sets of 4 around 80-83 percent of their 1RM, give or take a few percentage points.
