Fifteen Minute Fixes

Perhaps you have arrived to the gym fifteen minutes early, or you have 15 minutes to spare after class—are you using your time wisely to improve deficiencies, or are you just being a "chatty Kathy"? Whatever the scenario, your loving coaches suggest that you shut up and work on something you suck at. :) In all seriousness, we love to see you in the gym getting after it, and we want to help you become better.

Below are just a few specific examples of how you can get better in just 15 minutes.

Lower Body Mobility:

1 min. on each leg, couch stretch x 2 sets

2 min. in an olympic wall squat x 1 sets

1 min. on each leg, bottom up hip mobility x 2 sets

1 min. on each leg, hamstring stretch on a box or with a band x 2 sets

1 min. in the Paleo chair

Upper Body Mobility:

1 min. on each arm, shoulder distraction x 2 sets

1 min. on each arm, racked position stretch x 2 sets

1 min. on each arm, bully stretch x 2 sets

2 min. of foam roll/lacrosse ball t-spine mobility work in the low back and shoulders

1 min. in the keg drill

Pull-Ups:

3 min. Practice the kip swing (horizontal momentum).

3 min. Practice the kip swing with your knees up while you are back behind the bar (horizontal momentum).

4 min. Practice the kip swing, with knees up, quick turnover of hip, and pull for single rep pull-ups--use a band for assistance if needed.

5 min. Practice trying to string multiple reps together by actively pushing away at the top of the movement, using a band for assistance, if needed.

Muscle-Up:

1 min. Practice static holds with arms extended and locked out on the rings.

2 min. Work yourself into a ring dip. Aim for full range of motion, which is shoulders below the elbows. You may have to use a band for assistance.

6 min. Practice muscle-ups from the floor.

(Position your feet are below you, shoot your knees out over your toes, descend into a "bad squat," and hang underneath the rings, using the floor as support or walk feet out or raise the rings higher to make exercise more difficult).

-Use a false grip.

-With hands and elbows close together, pull the rings low into your chest.

-Quickly sit up into the rings, catching yourself in a low dip, sending your hips back behind your body, then press yourself up into a dip

6 min. Practice muscle-up attempts.

Strength:

Spend 5 minutes warming up for the particular movement you want to work on.  (This quick warmup time isn't ideal, but if you are in a time crunch it can work).

Then, EMOM for 10 minutes:

2 min. at 60% of 1RM x 5 reps

2 min. 65% of 1RM x 5 reps

2 min. at 75% of 1RM x 3 reps

2 min. at 80% of 1RM x 2 reps

2 min. at 85% of 1RM x 2 reps

You can increase the percentages or reps, if needed.

If you are simply working on technique, use the full 15 minutes to work on your form with lighter weight, or work on position drills (i.e. clean pulls, snatch pulls,...…)

Endurance:

Spend 15 minutes completing endurance drills

or...

Spend 5 minutes warming up for running or rowing.

Then, create your own interval workout for distance or time:

30 sec. run

30 sec. rest

x 10 reps


200m run

Rest 30 sec.

x 4-6 rounds

Blam! There you go! Now get into the gym early (or stay later) and start working through your weaknesses!
