At-Home WOD #1

TABATA wide-grip pushups, front squats, and situps. Rest at least 1:00 between efforts.

A tabata interval is :20 of maximal rep work then :10 of rest, repeated for 8 rounds/4:00. The goal is this workout is to go ALL OUT every interval, taking note of your reps.

Setting an arched position does two things for us in bench pressing: 1.) it changes the angle of the shoulder in a more productive angle that keeps us safe and allows for fuller muscle engagement, and 2.) provides the shoulders a way to pull back shortening the arms, fire off the lats, and shorten the range of motion even more by lifting the sternum up towards the bar.
