Building Blocks: The MB Building Block Day 1

Posted by Nick Folker on Oct 20, 2015 9:22:56 PM

Find me on:


This week's Building Block is a MB workout - 5-exercise workout using a MB.


MB Squat Front Raise:

Start standing in the squat position with the MB placed on the floor evenly between your feet. Keeping your chest up, squat down to pick the ball up. This is not like a kettlebell swing. This is a squatting movement, not a hinging movement, so keep your chest up and hips low as you pick up the MB. Your hips need to be at least at knee level or below. 

With straight arms pick the MB up. In a smooth movement raise the MB up keeping your arms straight as you stand up. Work on the timing of the movement. The MB should be overhead as you return to the start position of the squat. Pause. Again, work on a smooth, controlled movement as you return the MB to the ground. Pause. Without letting go of the MB repeat for prescribed reps.
