BUTTS & GUTS | Week 27
15 Single Leg Deadlift Right
15 Single Leg Deadlift Left
10 Shoot Thrus
Not really for time, but keep moving.For the single leg deadlift you will hold the dumbbell or kb in the opposite hand of the leg that will be working.
Fight not to twist. Allow a slight bend in the knee and touch either one head of the dumbbell or the bottom of the kb at the bottom. Keep the back flat and belly tight and squeeze the butt to stand up.
For the shoot thrus you will basically start in a push up position with your hands on parallettes, a stack of plates, benches - something like that. You will lift your knees up and swing your legs through until you have your legs straight and hip open in front of you. You will then shoot back through. That is one rep.
The closer you are to the ground - the harder these are. So scale if needed!

RX Men: 55#

For the swing you will keep the back flat and hinge at the hips. Allow a slight bend of the knee and then squeeze the butt hard to stand. Bring the kb to eye level.
The goblet lunges will be a reverse lunge while holding the kb in the goblet position at the chest. You will perform one lunge per side each time.
Box or Bench Plank Reach Ups
1 Min on 1 Min off
Basically start in a push up position and reach one hand up onto a stack of plates, a box or a bench. Bring the other hand to join it, then back down one at a time.
The higher the reach the harder this is.
If you need to scale further you may just reach and tap with one hand then the other!
