Exercise of week:

Modified version of Litvinov Workout.  20-30 KB swings followed by a 50 yard shuttle.  In video it was 20kg (44lb) KB.  You could use dumbell if there is not a KB in your gym.  This could be used as a finisher (conditioning) at the end of a training session or even an exercise to try on an off day from your regular strength training program.  Perform 2-4 sets and rest anywhere from 2-3minutes between each set.  As your conditioning improves try increasing the length that you run (either total yards or the amount of total time running) or resting less. The 2 1/2-3mins rest between sets was just the right amount of downtime because my heart was still significantly elevated.  Side note *- I could have controlled the KB a lot better as well as kept my neck packed back but overall not bad.

Research Reads: Nutrition Based

Music to enjoy:
For my first edition, wait… yes of course I am going to have Phil on here!

Last of the Mohicans, such a great movie, highly recommended it, for some reason it gets me pumped up. I am sure I would set a PR if this was blastin at Endeavor.

Hope you enjoy the reads, there is not a lot but next week there will definately be more things to look at.  Right now, it is time for Functional Strength Coach 3.0
