I get it. I'm not overly athletic, but my job does involve some climbing, lifting, stretching and balancing.Ive stopped deadlifts and heavy bench press for a few weeks.
I wanted to reset a few things
After years of the same movements, well they can become repetitive and you can over train some areas and I decided to make a change
Im working more explosive movements now and doing more body weight style and things which require much more stablizing strength.
I mean..as an example..I can easily deadlift 400 lbs off the floor but I would still tip over when standing on one leg trying to put my underwear on..lol
There is something to be said for those thin 75 year old ladies who can hold yoga positions..I have the most respect believe me.
Here is a movement called a dumbell snatch
You grab the weight from the center of your hips off of floor and explode up with your legs and hips. The arms and shoulders do almost nothing except stabilize at the top
This video is 65# lb from 2 weeks ago
I was able to get 70# for ten repetitions and I do 5 sets per workout as my 1st exercise
Video is slowed down to half speed
Kettle bell squats..high reps x 5 setsI get it. I'm not overly athletic, but my job does involve some climbing, lifting, stretching and balancing.
In some workouts I like doing things like weighted walking lunges, or a split squat where Ballance is more of a focus than just lifting heavy.
I see these workouts as helping me function longer and better at work.
I've done a superset with split squats, lunges, and Sissie squats. Could hardly walk after.
What other exercises are you doing?
