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.
Workout of the Day
5 sets of 3, 85%
Build to a heavy set of 2. Use the return to rack drill – drop the bar to the ground, perform 3 touch and go power cleans.
