Why Do This Workout? This is a true functional fitness workout. This helps train basic movements and energy systems you would use in daily life, like gardening for example. This will also help you recover from the week’s workouts.
Duration and Feel: Getting the workout done fast isn’t the goal. Try to go low and slow without stopping. Be consistent. This should take you at least 20 minutes.
DB Weight: The ground to over the shoulder is with a slam ball. Basically, pick it up and toss it over your shoulder. Squat to the ball to pick it up.
Specific warm-up focus: The planks are the warm up today.
Scaling Options: Lighter ball. 10 cals on a machine if no jumping for jump ropes.
