Practice Hollow Work movements


Tabata Hollow Work

8 Rounds each of 20 Sec Work, 10 Sec Rest:

Hollow Hold

Superman Hold

Hollow Rocks

V-Ups 2x2x tempo*


*2X2X tempo = 2 second raise to the top of  V-up, no pause at top, 2 second descent to bottom of V-Up, no pause at bottom

Way this will work, you will complete 8 rounds of 20 second work, 10 seconds rest of Hollow Hold, then after the 10 second break at the end of set 8 of Hollow hold, you will go right into 8 sets of 20 seconds work, 10 seconds rest of Superman Holds. This pattern will be the same when doing 8 sets of Hollow Rocks, and 8 sets of Tempo V-Ups.  For the Hollow Rocks and V-ups, do as many reps as you can int he 20 seconds per set. For the movements
