Pro Level Functional training Macrocycle 2-B

Weeks 19-24 of Macrocycle 2 for Functional training. This is a Tuesaday workout(upper body). Do 5-10 minutes of a dynamic warm-up to start workout. Complete in supersets of 2-3 exercises with 45 seconds rest between exercises. Rest 1-2 minutes between circuits.

Plyometric Depth Pushups

1. Start by placing feet on a bench and your hands on steps or blocks of your desired height.
2. Begin by getting into a push up position with your hands on the blocks.
3. Proceed into a pushup and when you push to extend your arms you should push hard enough to allow your hands to leave the blocks and land on the floor.
4. Once your hands have landed on the floor proceed into another pushup. Press up off the floor with enough force to have your hands leave the floor and land back on the blocks.
5. Repeat this cycle for the desired number of repetitions.

Hang High Pull

Keep torso straight but bent forward at the hips slightly.
Explosively raise the bar by extending the hips, knee and ankle in a “jumping action”.
Keep your elbows out and shoulders directly above bar as long as possible.
Keep the bar close to the body.
Once you have extended the lower leg shrug your shoulders and at maximum elevation of the shoulders start pulling with the arms.
Keep the elbows high during the pull until the highest point.
This should be a fluid motion where all the steps flow together.

Use 80-90 of max here, for pull. Use a heavier weight than you would on cleans.

Hang Snatch

Keep torso straight but bent forward at the hips slightly.
Explosively raise the bar by extending the hips, knee and ankle in a “jumping action”.
Keep your elbows out and shoulders directly above bar as long as possible.
Keep the bar close to the body.
Once you have extended the lower leg shrug your shoulders and at maximum elevation of the shoulders rotate the arms up and around above your head by exploding forward with your hips.
Slightly flex the hips and knees to absorb the weight.
This should be a fluid motion where all the steps flow together.

Use a lighter weight than on a regular snatch, but still heavy enough to do no more than 1-2 reps.
