WEEK Twelve DAY one
AS A REMINDER, HERE IS A MOVEMENT TUTORIAL. THIS VIDEO WILL WALK YOU THROUGH THE ENTIRE WORKOUT STEP BY STEP.
WHAT TO DO TODAY:
- Warm yourself up! You can use my program or a favorite of your own.
- Today you will start by spending a maximum of 15 minutes practicing a single movement. Then you will complete a movement flow workout. Remember that flows are movements that are supposed to be connected together. Do not stop between the movements, instead try and get them to flow into one another. There are 5 rounds, and you rest 60 seconds between each round. Last, you will do a tabata workout.
- Cool yourself down and stretch focusing on your forearms, hamstrings and grip.
A note on quality over quantity: The rep schemes listed are always a goal, not a rule. When in doubt it is better to do 1 quality rep over 10 sloppy ones. If it becomes obvious that the rep schemes are just too much, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Adjustments can always be made. THAT SAID! At this point in the 12 week program you should be consciously striving to get to these rep numbers at this point. It should be a goal.
PART 1 MOVEMENT PRACTICE
Press Pyramid - 15 minutes or time to complete
Press 2x per hand then 4, 6, 8, 10, 8, 6, 4, and finish with two. If completion is impossible, note how far you got in the time and use this structure later to denote improvement.
(see video for notes)

WITH YOUR RIGHT HAND IN A POSITION OF DOMINANCE
