MetCon for 3.25

Today's MetCon is strength—focused, with a big emphasis on the posterior chain:

Descending ladder 10 to 1:

  • Deadlift (no sumo stance)
  • Glute-Ham Raise
  • Kettlebell Swing

A descending ladder simply means you start with ten repetitions of each exercises; then do nine of each, then eight of each, etc., until you've gone all the way down to one rep of each exercise.


If you can't pull from the floor for your deadlift, use the pulling blocks for an elevated starting position (we do not allow rack pulls at Styrka!). You can also use a barbell set endwise on the floor to assist with the glute-ham raise.
