Week of May 14, 2018 – "Murph" coming up

We are in week 5 of 6 for our current strength progression.  The sessions should be getting very heavy, especially with the high number of sets.  Sets 4 and 5 may be challenging.  Make sure you are taking rest between sets after warming up properly.
We will be doing “Murph” as a gym on Saturday, May 26.  CFO will be closed on Memorial Day.  Murph is run 1 mile, perform 100 pullups, 200 pushups and 300 squats, then run 1 mile.  I am a big believer in partitioning the reps in Murph – 20 rounds of 5/10/15 is a great way to do the workout.
In the next 2 weeks, I will be sprinkling in 5 pullups/10 pushups/15 squats – also known as rounds of “Cindy” to get you prepped for cycling through. 

It might be Mother’s Day, but these Dad’s deserve some credit for making our lives better!
