Banded Speed Squats

Skill Warm-up – 10 minutes
3 rounds of
20 pistols (10 each leg)
10 kipping HSPUs – work on the kip. Use paralletes and abmats where necessary. This is a warm up, not a workout. Make sure it is not something to challenging.

Guy’s Set up

Dynamic Effort – 20 minutes

Red band and Blue band on each side wrapped around 2 sets of 2pood kbs for guys
Red band wrapped around 2 sets of 53kbs for ladies

Safety first! – Start light and take your time getting in and out of the rack.  Make sure weight is on the bar before you add the bands.

Work with a partner or rest 45 seconds between sets.  Control it on the way down but remember this is for speed on the way up.  If you are moving slow decrease the weight or increase the rest.

      picked up 425 for 3 today cold when Pat P was deadlifting…accommodating resistance and strength work must be working.

        but I will leave you with this…”sometimes when you bring the thunder, you get lost in the storm. But a true champion, face to face in his darkest hour will do whatever it takes to rise above. A man fights, fights, and fights some more. Because surrender is death, and death is for pussies. And my ass ain’t no pussy. My ass is a fucking champion.”
