Workout of the Day
A1) Sumo Deadlift
A2) Single Arm Tall Kneeling DB Press
3 x 8-12 ea side
Rest about 1 min between exercises.
Use your training notes from last week to guide you today. Ideally both exercises should be heavier today.
For the deadlift we will use wave loading. If you were here last week, aim to start your set of 8 reps a bit heavier than the 8 you did last week. If you weren’t, start with a moderately challenging weight for the set of 8 and increase load for each work set as the reps decrease. The final set is intended to be the same or heavier than the first.
Here is an example:
Warm up set or two: 115×8, 145×4
Every 3 min x 5 rounds
12 Sit Ups
50′ Double Kettlebell Front Rack Carry
Max Reps Calorie Bike until 1:30 mark of each round
Start at an 85% pace, something that feels sustainable if you were going to do 3 rounds in a row (no rest) with the same exact output. Hold that pace for 3 rounds and then aim to increase in the second half of the workout. Your score is the bike calories achieved across all 5 rounds. Go heavy on the carry
If you find yourself skipping out on the gym or modifying movements due to nagging aches and pains, then IronWorks is the right fit for you. Under the watchful eye of coach Katie, our in-house physical therapist, this program will focus on rehabilitation and performance simultaneously. She believes that training injured athletes to return to sport should be a systematic process that is tailored to the individual. Every participant can expect corrective strength balance work while safely resting their respective injury. In working with hundreds of clients over the last decade, Katie has established clear strength benchmarks that indicate an athlete’s preparedness to deadlift, run, press overhead, and so on. By following IronWorks, athletes will gain this objective knowledge and return to sport stronger and more confident than before.
What: 60 min semi-private personal training, 2x/week. Carefully planned programming provided to allow injured persons to train without worry. Similar to a regular personal training session, IronWorks will have a unique programming cycle. Based on movement screening and strength testing, folks attending class will follow an individualized strength cycle with pain-free scaling options alongside a group conditioning piece.
~30 min dedicated warmup/strength, ~30 min conditioning as a group
