May brings some new life, a fresh start and a new strength cycle: The Wedler 5-3-1.
For those new or experienced with Wendler, all should get excited to experience the strength gains that this simple and effective cycle brings to the table.
This week is testing week - we will be working up to a heavy 1-Rep Deadlift, Back Squat, and Bench Press.
We also have a huge benchmark coming at the end of May, Murph.
To help prep everyone we will be adding some extra credit 'Murph prep' that can be done outside of class. This will involve a split day of conditioning and bodyweight movements and a day that combines the two to get you accustomed to the volume.
For the Workout of the Week, don’t you dare miss Wednesday’s WOD:
3 ROUNDS FOR TIME
35 Box Jump Overs (24/20)
25 Chest to Bar Pull-Ups
5 Hang Power Clean (205/145)
(Score is Time)
Not a benchmark but just a really tough workout overall.
A heavy barbell plus a high skill gymnastic pull makes for a well balanced workout.
205/145lb hang cleans don’t get programmed all too often, so make sure you find a heavy weight that challenges you, but doesn’t break you!
