Today, I was going to post my video interview with Jonathan Fass, but I really wanted to bring you all a workout first since it’s been a while. However, I will post my conversation with Jonathan Fass tomorrow. The topic is something I think everyone (myself included) needs to do more – Critically Think. Without the ability to critically think, we are vulnerable to believing anything and everything we read or hear – especially in the fitness industry … with all those sneaky gurus lurking 😉 So I hope our conversation is helpful in understanding a little more about this. Plus you all get to “meet” my partner in crime 😀
This workout was filmed a few weeks ago. I meant to post it at the time, but I think I ended up writing about something else or I had to go work a night shift (oh, how I DON’T miss those times). Anyway, here it is 😉
You will notice that “exercise of the year” goes to the Single Leg RDL – When you are without heavier weights, single-leg will add a greater challenge and the best hip hinge strength exercise is the SL RDL. So, it’s a keeper. Please start with Bodyweight … balance is tough and it will really get you good at hinging.
1) Single-Leg Box Squat: 3×10 reps (each side)
2) Single-Leg RDL: 3×10 reps (each side)
Set your Interval Timer for 4-6 cycles of 15 seconds rest and 45 effort. Complete 2-3 rounds of the following two exercises:
1) Plank Climber
2) Two-Handed KB Swing
1) Single Arm Row: 3×10 reps (each side)
2) Single-Leg Foot-Elevated Hip Thrust: 3×10 reps (each side)
1) Death Sits (L-Sit): 2xmax hold
2) Farmers Walk: 2×30-45 seconds
Hope you enjoy!
Remember to check back tomorrow to meet Dr Fass for our wee chat 🙂
