Coaching Tips: You can start on any movement, but they must be performed in the order written. Box jumps should be jump up step down. Only use the ‘heavy’ kb for swings if you have the shoulder mobility to get it overhead without compromising form. If you want to ‘add weight’ to the pistol (so you can accomplish them), feel free to ‘scale up’ (just use as small of load as possible to keep you balanced).
Optional ‘Cash Out’ or Hypertrophy: None.
