Strength Cycle: Post-Open Cycle – Week 6

4 Zero Bounce Deadift @ 60-85% of 1RM DL
*Same weight as last week, but now we’ve added a rep. The key here is working on building eccentric control = stronger posterior
2-4 *Jelly Bellies* – in hollow rock position, keeping your legs 2-6″ off the ground, rotate your legs all the way around your body, keeping them close to the floor, making a *clock* on the ground. Each way = 1 rep. If you can’t keep your legs that low, just do the best you can.

3 Rounds
Run 400m or Bike 1000/800m or Row 500/400m
21 AKBS – 53/35
12 Pullups
*Time domain for Helen is 6-12min. If you need to modify the pullups or AKBS to stay in that time domain, then do so.
