Core Performance Movement Prep

Phase I
Superset 1 (10 seconds of rest between, 90 after):
Reach, Roll and Lift - 10 L/R, 10 L/R
DB External Rotation - 10 x 10, 10 x 10
L-Lateral Raise - 10 x 12, 10 x 12

Superset 2 (no rest between, 90 after):
YTWL - 2 x 12, 2 x 12
Face Pull - neutral grip - 50 x 15, 60 x 15

Push up plus on stability ball - 15, 15

Lat/chest stretching - 30 seconds each

Front squat - 45 x, 95 x 4, 140 x 3, 140 x 12, 140 x 11, 135 x 12
(Superset with full rest - 60 seconds)
Supine hip extension w/ leg curl - 12, 12, 12

Hammer Lunge - side - 5/L x 24 steps, 5/R x 24, 5/L x 24
(Superset with full rest - 60 seconds)
Knees to Elbows - 12, 12, 5

Notes:
-Reach, Rock and Lift - Looked easy on paper but these kicked my ass, it was a struggle to do the Lift portion with my palm facing up.
-YTWL- Struggle to finish the last few reps on W and L, shoulders were burning hard at this point.
-Front squat - I'm an idiot, the reason the weight was 140 is because I failed to put 5 pounds on one side of the bar, I didn't notice until my 3rd set. Good thing it was only 5 pounds and not a 25. That probably would have made it a bad day.
-Supine Hip extensions w/ leg curl- 1st set easy, last 2 sets after front squats not so easy
-Hammer lunge side - My left arm started to get tired from holding the weight out to the side near the end of the sets.
-Knees to Elbows - I was spent by the last set
