    Default TGU Question

    Okay I've just started on my journey. At the end of my short but sweet routine, I was advised to do 5 minutes of TGU. At first I could only manage 3.5 'ups'... that is 2x with my right arm and 1x with my left. M & T I failed with my left on the second attempt.

    W I was able to 'get up' 4 times. Today (R) I was able to get up 6 times.

    The questioin is, what should my progression be. If my goal is to hit 5 minutes, what should be my rep count before I consider moving the weight up? If at all? Right now I am just using a 45lb DB, awaiting the delivery of my KB.

    Thanks,

    james

    Don't worry about #'s, just focus on perfect form and technique. You want to practice the exercise not work out with it!

    If I understand ETK correctly, you would extend the time first then move up in weight after you've shown mastery of the weight by doing 5 ladders to 5 of C&P.

    Not rushing with my 1pd I get 10 reps, 5 on each side alternating sides in 5 minutes now and am practicing the clean and press. I'm thinking of moving to 6 minutes in a week or so.
