This Weeks Routine- Bottom's Up

I've done this routine a few times, and it is brutal on all the smaller muscles of the shoulder, arm, wrist, and hand.  It is an odd feeling after a few days, as I don't think I've ever felt those muscles so sore.  The premise is very basic. Simple perform the four exercises below with a "bottom up" bell position.  Move slow, very slow...except on the clean.

Because the grip fatigue will be high, limit your repetitions to 5 reps at a time or less.  Performing them in the order I have listed will help your overall performance on each.

 1) Bottom Up Turkish Getup - 5 each side

 2) Bottom Up Windmill - 3-4 sets of 5 or less each side

  3) 1 Arm Press - 3-4 sets of 5 or less each side

  4) 1 Arm Clean and Press - 3-4 sets of 5 or less each side

This is great for anyone who requires a strong grip.  That includes juijitsu, sailing, construction, mechanics, etc...
