** Important reminder as we have a lot of new faces in the gym.
If you see something in the programming you can not do, DON’T SKIP THE GYM THAT DAY.
We will modify the movement and get you working toward the most difficult progression.
Not interested in learning hand stand walks or going upside down? That’s perfectly fine. We can still work on shoulder strength without doing that. There’s always something to work on.

- SDLHP: Should allow for big sets with minimal rest between sets. If athletes cannot pull from the floor, Russian KB Swings are an excellent substitute.
- Burpees: Pace should remain quick from start to finish, should not exceed :40 to complete in any round. De-conditioned athletes may require a slightly lower rep scheme (8-6-4 or 6-5-4 etc)
Coach Focus: We are looking for the pace to stay quick from start to finish so it is critical that coaches temper athlete’s egos to ensure they can perform big sets of SDLHP and consistent burpees. Lighter on the barbell is better today.
