A quick but challenging routine today:
- Clean high pulls
- Single-leg (pistol) squats
- Single-arm cable presses
- Woodchops (kneeling)
- Two-point planks
Single-leg squats are one of my favorite exercises, but since today was a lower-rep day, I decided to try adding some weight, holding a weight plate with arms extended in front. This made the exercise quite a bit tougher in terms of force needed, and I got the load just right to do the required 4 sets of 6 per leg. Interestingly though, holding the weight that way also helped with balance somewhat.
Two-point planks are always difficult, especially at the end of the workout, but I got them done. I’ll have to focus next time on being able to hold the position even longer.
