Full Throttle Fitness - W.O.W

This week we spent a bit more time focusing on technique, making sure that everyone in the class was confident in performing the exercises. We were building on what we had done the previous week with some challenging pieces thrown in. As the saying goes, when we are under pressure we revert back to type, so we wanted to make sure everyone was on point.

The core session heavily featured Kettlebells (no surprise there right?). Here's What we got up to..

Full Throttle Fitenss - Workout of The Week

Warm up: Joint Mobility & Dynamic Movement

Coach Cj's Section:

Double Kettebell Single Arm Turkish Get Up 1/3 reps x 2-3 sets

Take two kettlebells (one heavy one lighter) and perform a turkish get up with both kettlebells in one arm. This is a strength based exercises so keep the reps low. It's also fantastic for working on your grip.

Double Kettlebell Jerk 10 reps x 10 sets (25 seconds rest in between sets)

This challenging Kettlebell piece is great for developing total body strength endurance and getting your heart rate up. The 25 second rest period seems like no rest at all (but is always welcomed). Men used 16kg/ 20kg/ 24kg the Ladies used 12kg/ 16kg.

Rest 3 minutes then....

Single Arm Kettlebell Snatch x 8 minutes (we changed hands each minute).

Due to time constraints Coach Skala kept it simple and finished us off with a Burpee in to tuck jump ladder with a jog as active recovery. We started at 10 reps and worked our way down to 1.

It was a short sharp and effective session which wiped us out! We'll post the video of the exercises by Wednesday of this week (just experiencing technical issues at the moment!).
