Barry is going to be eased in…unlike what he did with me when he set the Kiddie Krippler on me on my first or second session.
His session looked like this:
Rower – 4x500m with 60 sec recovery between efforts. We did this at a really comfortable pace. Focused on lengthening his stroke and drawing right through the stroke…getting his shoulders down and his shoulder blades together.
We then did an upper body warm up…some open and closed horizontal band pull-a-parts, vertical band pull-a-parts along with band dislocates. A couple of sets of 8 reps of each…I think.
Then we did a circuit of chest supported scap rows, scap push ups, inverted shrugs and scap pull ups…again we did 2 or 3 sets of 8 reps.
1A Band Assisted Pull Ups – 10 sets of 5 reps.
1B Blast Strap Push Ups – 10 sets of 5 reps.
Barry doesn’t know this yet…but he is never going to do a pull up again that doesn’t involve his chest touching the bar. Hence the use of the band to enable this at the moment…we’ll wean him of the band though in the months to come.
So…that’s 2 sessions down and only about 96 more till he fights again.
