Feel: For Quality/Accessory
Target Score: Complete 8 Minutes before 15 minute Cap
Firebreather Score: Complete 8 Minutes before 15 minute Cap
- Lateral Plank (side plank): Reduce duration or do the lateral plank on your knees instead of the side of their foot. Athletes should be able to plank :45+, per side, on their first attempt
- Barbell Good Morning: Should be light enough that 10 reps are never “hard”
Coach Focus: The barbell good mornings should be ultra light, encourage athletes to shoot for perfect hinging mechanics with a smooth speed rather than for maximal weight. Athletes go for max duration on one side, then immediately to the other side, and then perform their good mornings after failure on the other side. Recommend athletes start the next set on the opposite side, since most will hold for less time on the second side.
