Athlete's choice on the loading for the static holds, with the intention being that each set is completed not only unbroken, but with close attention to our positioning. We can use a dumbbell, or kettlebell for the above work.
On the single arm overhead holds, it can be common to find ourselves compensating to one side. This is seen (and felt) through our body leaning left or right in an attempt to place our center of mass directly under the overhead load.
Although this makes logical sense for the body to naturally want to do so, let's fight against this and force our midline to do the work. Square ourselves to the front, cinching the rib cage down, visualizing our midsection as a concrete box.
On the front rack carry, this is completed with either two dumbbells or kettlebells, both held in the front rack position.
