MetCon for 3.25

Today's MetCon is strength—focused, with a big emphasis on the posterior chain:

Descending ladder 10 to 1:

  • Deadlift (no sumo stance)
  • Glute-Ham Raise
  • Kettlebell Swing

A descending ladder simply means you start with ten repetitions of each exercises; then do nine of each, then eight of each, etc., until you've gone all the way down to one rep of each exercise.

Modifications:

If you can't pull from the floor for your deadlift, use the pulling blocks for an elevated starting position (we do not allow rack pulls at Styrka!). You can also use a barbell set endwise on the floor to assist with the glute-ham raise.
