The girls have been doing some good work over the last few weeks. Tonight’s session looked like this:
5x2mins cardio + stretching
1A Hurdle Steps
1B Scap Push Ups
1C Over’s & Under’s
1D Scap Pull Ups
Single Arm DB Snatch – 2 w/u sets of 8 reps, 5 work sets of 5 reps
Box Squats – 2 w/u sets of 5 reps, 5 work sets of 3 reps
Plate Shifting – 5 sets of 4(2.5kg) + 4(5kg)
Band Pull Ups – 2 w/u sets of 12 reps, 5 work sets of 8 reps with 5 sets of 8 elevated push ups.
Torque Press – 4 sets of 8 reps + 30second isometric hold.
Now the form isn’t perfect…but I can live with that…you learn by doing…not by talking every exercise to death. I know a lot of coaches seem to have a problem with DB Snatches…I think the main reason for this is because one particular coach who makes his name by being a contrary has a problem with them. That aside I’ve always liked them and have never had any problems with them.
