Strict Press

5 Sets of 3 Reps

• Building to a heavy set of 3 across the 5 sets today

• The strict press will come from the racks

MOVEMENT FOCUS

Squeeze Hard

We get the most out of these strict presses not by lifting the most weight, but by moving as well as possible with heavy weights. Rather than getting a little help from the hips or arching the back a little bit, let’s try to stay as vertical as possible. One way to keep the legs out of it and stay vertical is to squeeze the belly, butt, and quads tight during the whole lift.

• 6 total working sets, resting as needed between

• Round percentages up or down as needed to create clean numbers to work with

MOVEMENT FOCUS

Click-Click

We can listen for two clicks today when deadlifting. The first happens before we even lift the weight. When getting set-up in the bottom, pull up on the barbell without lifting it off the floor to “take the slack out of the bar”. This sets the body into a more active position to lift heavy weights. The second click happens on the way down. When trying to get strong, we want to control the bar as much as we can. If we “click” the bar off the ground instead of slamming it into the floor, we are using more muscle and not just gravity to help get the bar off the floor. Lightly “clicking” the bar gets us a lot stronger than slamming.

10 Push-ups

3-5 Strict Pull-ups

Gymnastic Focus Work 15 min cap

5 Rounds For Time:

6 Toes to Bar + 5 Chest to Bar Pull-ups + 4 Bar Muscle-ups

*Every Break: 100 Meter Run

STIMULUS

• The five rounds of this gymnastic complex are to be completed for time

• The workout starts on gymnastic complex, with any break on the bar requiring a trip to the 50 m speed bump =100 m run total.

• You can do as as many unbroken complexes in a row as you’d like, there is no need to stop after the 4 bar muscle-ups

• If you do choose to break after the 4 bar muscle-ups, or at any point, that would require a 100 m run

• There is no need to run following your final bar muscle-up in round 5

• Pick a rep scheme and/or variations that you can complete 1 full complex unbroken when fresh

• There is also the option to cap at 15 min or shorten the total volume to 3 or 4 rounds

STRATEGY

• The most common strategy here will likely be to break after the 4th bar muscle-up of each set and take the 100 meter penalty

• If you are more comfortable on these movements, it may be best to go with 1+ or 2+ complexes straight, as that limits the total number of running trips

• On every run, find a recovery pace that allows you to go back to the rig for a very large set

MOVEMENT FOCUS

• On all three movements, focus on leading the way with the feet

• This is easy to keep top of mind, because you’ll already do it on the toes to bar

• Leading with the feet on the pull-ups and bar muscle-ups help you maintain rhythm, stay hollow, and “pull” less of your body weight

SUBSTITUTIONS

If You are Subbing Complete the Following Complex:

6 Toes to Bar, 5 Pull-ups, 4 Chest to Bar Pull-ups

Strength

BENCH PRESS

STIMULUS

• Building to a heavy set of 3 across the 5 sets today

• The strict press will come from the racks

Bench Press

5 Sets of 3

STIMULUS

• Building to a heavy set of 3 across the 5 sets today

• If you don’t have a spotter, do not put clips on the bar so it is easy to dump the weight

MOVEMENT FOCUS

Lumbar Curve

Our focus on both of the strength pressing movements is to maintain the natural lumbar curve in the lower back. It is really tempting to arch the lower back hard to get better leverage or get a little more “oomph” into each press. Let’s try to make these as strict as possible. Doing that ensures we are strengthening the chest and shoulders without getting any help from the hips or lower back.

MOVEMENT PREP
