Video 2 of 15
*Please complete, then repeat sessions 1, 2 and 3 in order before moving on to Video 4. These sessions are for Weeks 1+2 of your program.
*There is an optional fourth session included in the written program ONLY (no video, all movements from previous sessions); the fourth session is also meant to be repeated.
Session 2 should feel like an overall RPE (rate of perceived exertion) of 8, or 80% of your total overall effort. This session will mostly focus on upper body push and pull movements for strength, as well as combinations building up to a kettlebell snatch (or actual snatches for advanced students). This is another sneaky core class; aim to have at two reps left in the tank after most movements, working almost to failure.
Today's video includes a skill break, covering standing strict presses and how to make tension to press safe and heavy; hit fast forward the second time you watch the video to skip this section if you don't need the refresh.
Key Movements and Equipment Recommendations:
*single side swing clean to strict press (x1 kettlebell you can lift up to x5 reps overhead)
*bench rows (x1 RPE 8 kettlebell or dumbbell you can pull for at least x8 reps, bench or sturdy chair)
*double laying chest presses (x2 RPE 8 kettlebells or dumbbells you can push for at least x8 reps)
*optional kettlebell snatches (x1 kettlebell you can snatch comfortably for x10 reps)
