GTG - when time is not on your side...

Grease the Groove is basically frequent but not to failure sets through a day or period of time and is an excellent solution for those that can only grab exercise "snacks" during the day.

Last week training was thin but yesterday and today:

4/4

GTG -
36 kg Get-up x 1+1
36 kg One arm swing x 5+5
x 5 sets through the day

Today
GTG
36 kg Get-up x 2+2
36 kg One arm swing x 5+5
x should be 5 + sets by end of day

Skill of Strength in Mass


While traveling to teach an FMS combo course in Saco, ME at Orthopeadic Associates I had to chance to hit Mike Perry's gym - Skill of Strength on Thursday 3/27 for a training session.

Mike also assisted me at the workshop along with Jeff Falkowski and Peter Clark - Huge thank you to those guys for helping out and making it a great weekend.

At Skill of Strength

Prep - foam roller and movement prep

Get-up weight ladder
32 kg x 1+1
40 kg x 1+1
48 kg x 1+1
x 2 ladders

Deadlift
405 x 1 x 3 sets
315 x 2

Sled work

I had never pushed sleds before and it was enlightening!

DL felt good and get-ups were solid
