“What you think is attainable is just a function of what you know at the moment…Remember that great expectations create great capabilities. If you limit your goals to what you know you can achieve, you are setting the bar way too low.”

– Ray Dalio

Our expectations can push us — but can also constrain us, too. What’s your biggest goal right now? If you cracked it open, could you make it bigger?

Levels 0/1
E4MOM (~5 sets but take your time!)
Do not rush the movements, focus on quality. Start light and add weight on the squats. Break up the hang if you need to. Keep your shoulders packed and brace your core on the sit-through.

5 Double Kettlebell Squats
30 seconds Hollow Hang (add Scap Retractions if you can)
10-20 Alternating Sit-Through’s (FORM is PARAMOUNT – ONLY DO MORE IF YOUR SKILL IS PERFECT)
