Post loads to comments.
Exposure 3 of 8
5 Rounds or 20 Minutes:
8ea Contra-lateral Single Leg Romanian Deadlifts
4-8 Tempo Chin-Ups (3/1/1/3 Tempo)
50yd Farmer Carry
Stay light-medium (and humble) on the SLRDLs. Focus on balance through the whole foot and keeping hips and torso squared to the floor throughout the movement. Kettlebells or Dumbbells are ok if you’re adding weight. Use a light barbell or a PVC if you have to. 3 second hold at the top and bottom of the Chins. Use bands for assistance as needed. Work up to a heavy 50 yard carry over the 5 sets.

Get Well Constance!
A couple weeks ago our own Constance T tripped while at the bank and unfortunately chipped part of her bone and damaged the prosthesis in her shoulder. The repair required surgery and may have been a blessing in disguise since they found an infection in the area that needed attending to! Constance is doing really well post operation and will do some Physical Therapy before coming back to CFSBK. If you know Constance, you know it takes a lot more than this to keep her down! Today’s blog post is her “digital get well card”. Please post love to the comments section!

Overhead work: 63-73-83-93-103-113
113 was a little sloppy.
RDL- 16kg- 20kg- 20kg-20kg. Difficult keeping my hips square.
Chin-ups- did 3-3.5 with Melody assisting me on the way up.
Farmer carries- 24kg- red-red- 24kg(bc they were the last ones left out)
So glad it was a NFT today because this was a not-so-good workout week for me! Hopefully my body is recovered and back to normal by Saturday!
