For those that have been following Cavemantraining for a while, they know the Silverback Workout which was designed in 2016 and redone in 2018. A 20-minute AMRAP with low reps and medium weight.
This is the new workout, which features exercises like Gorilla Rows and Gorilla Curls. Let’s get stuck into it.
- 4 x Gorilla Rows
- 4 x Gorilla Cleans
- 4 x Gorilla Curls
- 4 x Renegade Rows Deadlift
20 MINUTES AMRAP
Use two kettlebells of light to medium weight. The curls are the exercises upon which you need to base your weight, i.e. you might be able to perform all other exercises with two 24’s but you struggle to maintain even close to a proper curl with that, it ain’t the weight to be using. The curl is also the exercise with which you run the most risk of tendon issues. So, check your ego at the door and pick the weight based upon the Gorilla Curls!
Kettlebell Gorilla Rows
Come into a hip hinge with the hips pushed back and the back parallel to the ground. Lean on one kettlebell as you work with the other. Row into the groin, we want to target the rear delts, so, row back and focus on the forearm being relaxed.
Kettlebell Gorilla Cleans
Kettlebell Gorilla Curls
As with the rows, you want to come into a hip hinge with the hips pushed back and the back parallel to the ground. Lean on one kettlebell as you work with the other. You want the elbows to flare out to the side and bring the hand towards the middle of the chest. No tight grip, just let the handle loosely rest in the gorilla grip. Try and refrain from moving anything else but the elbow and elbow flexors.
Renegade Rows Deadlift
In a plank position, row one side into the hips, row the other, this is usually one rep, but we’re also going to kick it back in each time with the feet landing flat next to the kettlebells just on the outside. Unlock a video of myself and Anna performing one round. The Instagram videos don’t feature the deadlift, however, the final workout does include a deadlift.
