***The Jefferson squat shall be performed with the person straddling over the middle of the bar. Now grab the bar with a switch grip. If the right hand is grasping the front of the bar then the right foot should point forward, while the left foot points slightly outward. Make sure your chest is tall & the knees do not cave in during the movement, switch the grip and foot position at rounds.

Drop Down Moves

This is a 25 second work / 10 second recovery for 5 rounds at each circuit with a 1:30 rest in between circuits

Circuit A… 5 rounds Non-Stop

  • Dbl KB Push Presses
  • Single KB Push Press (r)
  • Single KB Push Press (l)
  • Goblet Squats

Rest 1:30

Circuit B… 5 rounds Non-Stop

  • Dbl KB Rows
  • Single KB Row (r)
  • Single KB Row (l)
  • Figure 8 to a Hold

Maintain the same weight that you use for the double KB for the single KB movement. You are pre-exhausting the shoulders during the dbl movement and then continuing strengthening by isolating each side. This will increase strength gains. Shoot for 8-10 reps during the 25 second work. If you can get 12-14 reps it’s too light – if you get only 4-6 reps it’s too heavy. Choose the weight wisely.
