  • Rotational Press: This functional movement enhances shoulder stability and strength, with a twist to engage the core.
  • Racked Carries: Carrying weights in the racked position challenges your core, improves posture, and builds upper-body endurance.
  • Swings: Kettlebell or dumbbell swings are fantastic for explosive power, working everything from your glutes to your shoulders.
  • Extended Rack Lunge: Add a twist to traditional lunges with an extended rack position to further challenge your balance and core.
  • Single-Single-Dbl Cleans: This complex move boosts coordination and power, combining single-arm and double-arm cleans.
