EMOM 18 (Every minute on the minute for 18 minutes). Use any remaining time in the minute interval for rest.
Minute 1: 45sec DB Renegade Rows (remaining 15 seconds - rest)
Minute 2: 10 Kettlebell swings- eye level (advanced: overhead swing):
Minute 3: 40 weighted flutter kicks
** For the weighted flutter kicks, select a single dumbbell or plate, hold it above your chest with your arms extended, lift your shoulders slightly off the floor, and keep the lower back flat against the floor- do NOT arch your back!. With a tight core brace, perform the flutter kick R+L = 1 repetition.
This 10-minute lower back/front body opening recovery sequence will feel great after this core-focused workout.
