The Sunday Supplement W/E 16/12/18

9 days till Santa comes! I may or may not still need to get some shopping done, but it’s more or less under control. I think.

Workout of the week

This hits pretty much everything in a short amount of time. Just get warmed up and get it done!

a1. Front squat (or heavy landmine/ goblet squat) 4×6

a2. DB press 4×10

a3. Chest supported DB row 4×12

a4. KB swing 4×15

Use the best weights you can, rest as needed between each exercise to give you the best chance of performing the next in the series as well as possible. This’ll usually be around 1-3 minutes, not much more. On completing the swings, maintain the momentum, and get into the next round asap.
