Handstand Push-up 101July 30, 2015
Focus 1: Deadlifts
Focus 2: Kettlebell Swings
Workout: KB Swings, Bear Crawl, Russian Twist
This coming Saturday’s class will focus on the best and most bad-@$$ way to pick something up off the floor, the Deadlift. We’ll cover proper form, technique, common cues, common mistakes and how to avoid them, and why a good Deadlift is essential for a good kettlebell swing (which, oddly enough, we’ll also be reviewing!).
Class will include:
- Practical review of the Deadlift, including lifts with both just the bar and with added weight;
- Appropriate scaling for both strength and met-con based classes involving the Deadlift;
- Practical review of Kettlebell Swings, along with appropriate scaling during the day’s workout; and,
- Additional scaling and substitution options for the Base Camp workout of the week, including how and when to choose a scaling/substitution option.
To review before class, we highly recommend checking out the following demo video on proper set-up for the Deadlift:
