Posture and Awareness
Two-Minute Drill. You learned this yesterday. So, forget about everything and just breathe for two minutes.
The Functional Progression
FP 2 x 20 Each Side
15 Inverted Rows
4 Overhead Walking Lunges (Warm Up)
60s Lizard Stretch
The conditioning is pretty long and shoulder intensive. Please be mindful and treat your body accordingly. Please do one or two warm up sets before getting into these working sets. Go as heavy as you can be successful for all three sets.
3 x 8 DB Incline Bench
This should be at 65-75% intensity with the focus on QUALITY. Use a weight for dumbbells in which you can keep your rib cage stack on top of your pelvis and your elbows locked out pressing above your head. Strict Pull-ups or ring rows are fine for this workout. The elevated push ups should be done at a height in which you can maintain a straight line with your body and still make contact with your chest at the bottom. Please keep your elbows next to your rib cage. If you know you have DRA, then you need to be extra awareness to the entire body moving as one to an elevated destination (bench, box, stack of plates, etc). Make an effort to rest between rounds rather than during movements. Have fun!
