Life aquatic and leverage lifting

Swimming is a movement skill I don’t practice very often. I went for a dip on Sunday and realised I don’t do it enough! It felt unnatural and hard, not how it should at all, and not how it used to – it’s another thing to put on the list of activities. My back felt a bit smoked today so I skipped the ring workout and hit some leverage lifting. This kind of lifting really stresses the stabiliser muscles and grip and a relatively light weight can be very challenging. I find I recover from it pretty quick though and it has great carry over to ‘real world’ strength.

Warm up – joint mobility
