-TGU’s, Snatches, Swings, and BOSU Burpees!-
I have been getting back into the swing of things with my own workout routine this week! The flu set me back a bit, but I was determined to get back at it this week! Been feeling like a weakling, lol! 🙂
Monday’s workout was great!
Today I decided to modify it a bit.
For my warm-up, I did TGU singles, 5 per side, with my 8kilo. This took roughly 4 minutes, so I threw in some Cossack stretches afterwards, and then was ready to go!
Did I mention that I LOVE TGU’s? 🙂
I went through five rounds of:
- 10 Snatches
- 10 1-Arm Swings
- 10 BOSU Burpees (hold the edges of the flat side and perform a modified Burpee, placing the dome on the ground, sprawling out, hopping back in, and pulling the BOSU up to you as you stand up)
Awesome workout! I rested as little as possible and the entire thing took me 24 minutes…that’s with a few small breaks to answer a text message or two, lol!
Here are some vids!
TGU: As i’ve said before, the TGU is an EXCELLENT warm-up movement. Why? It works the body in all three planes, and it is awesome for both hip and shoulder mobility. Most people aren’t capable of performing a full-fledged TGU with good form just starting out, so there are tons of drills and exercises that can be utilized to work up to the “real deal!” Great stuff!
Cossack Stretch: This is an awesome stretch for the adductors! It will improve your hip mobility, so most of you could benefit from it! In this vid, I demonstrate several levels of progression.
KB Snatch: Snatches are one of my favorite kettlebell drills. They just feel good to me! The Snatch is one of those exercises that can be tricky to “get,” but once you get it, it becomes a lot of fun! Making the movement fluid and keeping your entire body tense are keys to mastering the Snatch! I shot this vid back in December, and I have newer ones, but this one will do for now! I figured Biskit’s fans would like to see him! 🙂
1-Arm Swing: You guys really are getting some good content today! 🙂 I just uploaded this vid to YouTube. In it, I demonstrate both the 1-Arm Swing and the Clean & Press. I have combined these two drills into a mini-complex.
Burpees: Just a flat-out butt-kicker! I don’t have a vid (yet) of how they are done with a BOSU, but I will work on that! If you’re unfamiliar with Burpees, you’ll get the idea from this vid!
Hope y’all got a kick out of this post! Now go hit it hard! 🙂
