MACHINES, FARMERS CARRY, & ABMAT SITUPS
Get Long
Recently we talked to athletes about the finish position of the AbMat sit-up. We can carry thing upper body positioning both the bike and the farmers carry. On both of these movements, let’s think about pushing the chest forward and getting long through the upper body. It is common on the bike for athletes to sit back into their trunk and round the upper body forward. This rounded forward position is also common on the farmers carry. Although the majority of these aren’t weighted movements, we can reinforce good position by maintaining the same position on all three of them.

STRICT PULL-UP
Lower Body
We got long through the upper body in our first three movements. During our strict pull-up, we want to get as long as possible through the lower body, just like we do in a hollow hold. This helps us avoid the “sea horse” or knees up pull-ups that tend to make these reps a little easier and sacrifices good positioning. Pick a variation and/or break-up strategy that allows you to stay long and bust out some quality strict pull-ups.

Movement Substitutions
Reduce Reps
Banded Pull-ups
Ring Rows

STRATEGY
GENERAL

  • Use the sit-ups and pull-ups as the “breathers” that allow you to go faster on the other movements

BIKE

  • Movements that surround the bike aren’t that taxing on the breath
  • Aim to go a little faster here than you normally would
  • A little over a minute effort each time

STRICT PULL-UPS

  • 2-3 sets each round is manageable across the workout
    • 3 Sets: 4-3-3
    • 2 Sets: 5-5

FARMERS CARRY

  • Try to limit these to one break
  • Not using the grip on the AbMat Sit-ups or pushups that follow, so we can afford to go bigger
