Another day, another workout challenge

I didn’t get a chance to video tape my challenge for today, but it was another sweaty one! Since I hit the weights a little harder on Monday, today I wanted to focus more on power generation today.  Here is what it looked like:

  • 20 Walking Lunges
  • 10 Box Jumps
  • 20 Kettlebell Swings
  • 15 Bottoms Up Kettlebell Thrusters
  • 30 seconds Battling Ropes
  • Repeat 4 times!

The key with all of these exercises is feeling the connection with the ground.  Every time you take a lunge step, feel the front foot pushing into the ground to drive your forward into the next step.  The same goes for the Kettlebell Swings.  As the hips drive forward, that force is generated by driving the feet down into the ground.  Box Jumps as I have posted about before are all out the landing mechanics.  This is another great way to work on loading the muscles.  As for the Thrusters, I will post a video tomorrow for those specifically.  This version really challenged my shoulder stability and grip strength!

Until then……..S

I'm Shawn, Performance Coach at Golfletica in Bellevue, Wa. I specialize in bringing out the awesome in athletes, especially golfers. 13 years ago I graduated from the home of the 2010 FCS Football Champions (Go Eags!) with a degree in Exercise Science and a broken down body from playing college golf. That lead to my mission to help the world move better, with less pain and killer dance moves. Thanks to the help of my partner in crime Dr. Harry Sese, not only am I playing pain free golf but I get to witness lives change everyday through the power of teamwork.
