Hump day brings you a unique triplet that involves a lot of hip. Candlesticks are a sneaky Squat, plus loaded Step-ups for more booty, and Heel Taps are sure to light up the Hip Flexors! We are giving the upper body a little break today (apart from holding the MB) after the last few days of going overhead, plus lots of pulling and pushing. Today is more about muscular endurance rather than cardiovascular endurance.
The med ball needs to be held in a Bear Hug position. This will make the Step-ups slightly awkward, especially when people fatigue and start to roll forward through the shoulders even more. The height for the Box is 24/20 in. for all categories.
The limitation today for most athletes will be muscle fatigue, rather than heavy breathing. This means you should plug away at the workout at a pace that allows you to keep moving without needing to rest too much. There shouldn’t be the need to rest during any movement. The reps are low enough to do unbroken. The Heel Taps will get spicy, but 15 is a manageable amount.
Today the goal is right around 7+ rounds.
