PIVOT gRIPS Daily Workout #20

May 29, 2017

I apologize for not posting for a couple of days! Although my free time is limited, I have been a highly active person my whole life and need my "workout fix." Crossfit, weightlifting, hockey, surfing, skiing and of course, starting PIVOT gRIPS are my passions. While playing hockey Thursday night, I realized that there is not enough Crossfit workouts in the world to prepare me for "hockey shape." A solid 20-30 seconds of hard skating is still the absolute worst. I compare it a lot to the Assault or Airdyne bike. 20-30 seconds on it will have your quads screaming. I can say that Crossfit helps me recover way quicker and I am much less exhausted after the game. That being said, today/tomorrow's workout will BURN those quads.

Part 1: Warmup. Spend 5-7 minutes working on your tight/troublesome spots.

Part 2: Quad Couplet

5 Minute AMRAP

10 Cal Airdyne, 10 Burpees to pullup bar

Rest 5 Minutes

10 Cal Airdyne, 10 Chest to Bar Pullups. Scale to kipping butterfly or banded. Ring rows will work as well.

Rest 5 Minutes

10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 Ascending/Descending Ladder: Airdyne Cals and 88/73Lb Kettlebell swings. Scale the swings, but make it heavy! Start with 10 Cals on the Bike and 1 swing, then 9 Cals and 2 swings, etc, etc. Last set should be 10 Swings and 1 Cal on the bike.
