Add this version of an already difficult exercise to your #conditioning routine: #burpee Rows-to-Squatpress!
Remember, this is geared toward overall #fitness and general #strength, not absolute strength, so begin with lighter #weights. When you become proficient in the movements, increase weight, but not to the point of struggle during the dumbbell lifts.
And remember to tighten those abs and keep that chest up! No slouching of the back. #dowork
Farmer Gym's Weekly Work:
Deadlift, 6 sets x 2 reps
(Set of 10 reps; set of 9 reps; and so on and so forth, until you complete the round of 1 rep -- use aprx. 20-40% of 1RM)
(Rest as needed, then proceed to the next round, completing one less rep of each exercise.) #dowork #outdoorworkout #outdoortraining #staystrong #farmergym
When squatting, you want the bar to remain over your mid-foot position, the balance point, throughout the lift. This is the most efficient way to work; when the bar comes too far forward or goes too far backward, the body must compensate by expending more energy than necessary just to maintain balance due to lean. #squatright #squatstrong #squat
Your body is the machine; your environment is your gym. #noexcuses

Here's a drill to help get your knees out during the squat: Purchase a band from Target or Walmart. Place the band just above your knees, and then extend them outward for 3 sets of 10 repetitions. Perform this several times a week, until it becomes habit. Not only will this drill help promote healthier knees, but it also will better active your butt muscles. #squat #squatright #liftwell
