Monday 11.24.14

Programming note for this week: We are back to week 1 of our 5/3/1 regimen for our 4 main lifts (squat, shoulder press, deadlift, bench press).  Provided you hit your numbers during the previous cycle you are going to (pay close attention) add 10 pounds to your 1rm on lower body lifts and add 5 pounds on your upper body lifts.  If you did not experience great success during the 1st cycle I would strongly encourage you to take your ego out of the equation and work off of a revised, lighter 1RM. Just so you know, plan to stick with the same 1RM for the duration of the cycle. Avoid the temptation of bumping up your theoretical number mid-cycle.

Buy In:Read the programming note above. 21 Burpees. Downdog progression, tabata style. 10 reps band shoulder complex.

Squat 1x5@55%,1x5@65%,1xMax reps@75%
