Body Armor

Rest 2 Minutes Between Sets

“Giant Sets” are big supersets where you move right from one movement to the next while prioritizing quality over speed
We’ll rotate through 3 movements in today’s Body Armor piece
You can build in weight/resistance over the 3 sets, or stay the same acros
Choose challenging weights, but loads that allow you to complete each movement without stopping
Rest 2 minutes between sets to preserve quality movement
See below for movement demos

“Power Wash” (On the 0:00)
Every 10 Minutes x 2 Rounds:
1,000/800 Meter Row
30 Dumbbell Power Snatches (70/50)
50 Wallballs (30/20)

This is part 1 of a two-part running clock workout
In this 2-round workout, rounds starts on the 0:00 and the 10:00 (Part 2 starts on the 30:00)
In the first round, you’ll complete the three movements and rest with whatever time remains until the 10:00 on the clock

For Example: If round 1 takes you 8 minutes to complete, you’ll have 2 minutes to rest until round 2
Your score today is the slower of the two rounds
We expect rounds to take between 6:30 – 8:30 to complete
To ensure we have some rest built, cap your first round at 9 minutes
You’ll alternate arms every rep, for a total of 15 each side
Choose a weight here that allows you to complete the 30 reps in no more than 3 sets
Choose a wallball weight that allows you to complete at least 10 reps at a time within the workout

With the score being the slowest of the two rounds, move at a pace in the opening round that you see yourself being able to match or improve upon in round 2

The row is important, but not as important as the weighted movement
With 2 rounds that last between 6:30-8:30, let’s row at a pace that is around 5 seconds slower than your 2k pace per 500
For Example:
If your best 2k row is 8:00, your pace per 500 would be 2:00
In today’s workout, it may be best to hover right around 2:05
If you don’t know what your 2k pace is, row at a moderate pace that you think you could maintain for around 15 minutes

The goal on the dumbbell power snatches is to just stay moving as much as possible
The nature of this movement makes it easier to stay moving than the wallball does
Completing quick singles where you switch hands with the dumbbell on the ground can be a very consistent option across both rounds
If you’re confident with touch and go reps in both rounds, switching hands in the air will be significantly faster
When considering singles or touch and go, take into account the plan on the wallballs to follow

Knowing there rest following the wallballs, let’s try to hold on for bigger chunks if possible
Consider the following break-up options:
1 Set: 50
2 Sets: 25-25 or 30-20
3 Sets: 25-15-10
4 Sets: 15-15-10-10
5 Sets: 10-10-10-10-10

100 Meter Row
8 Dumbbell Power Snatches
6 Wallballs
4 Dumbbell Squat Snatches
