THIS WEEK AT THE GYM: NCX W/C 9/13
Last week you all got to retest your 10 REP MAX.
HUGE FIST BUMPS TO... Priscilla & Buck who PR’d their 10-REP MAX!
Priscilla went from 105lbs for 10 to 120lbs for 10
Buck went from 265lbs for 10 to 275 for 10.
AMAZING PROGRESS. AMAZING ACHIEVEMENTS.
Coach Alex has a great perspective on 10-REP MAX...' I love 10 rep max lifts, especially when you look at the cumulative amount of weight lifted - for example Priscilla went from lifting 1,050 total pounds to lifting 1200 total pounds. The difference is quite staggering when you look at it from that perspective'.
For strength this week we’ll begin an 8 week cycle building to test a 3-Rep Back Squat, Bench Press and Push Jerk.
For the workouts there’s some fantastic love/hate types of grind workouts coming. Brace yourself, you know you will feel better for it!
Coach Alex's WOW?... 'I’m a sucker for couplets, so I’ve got to highlight Monday - start the workweek off with a dose of high intensity:
FOR TIME 25-20-15-10-5* Cal Bike 5-10-15-20-25 Shoulder To Overhead (135/95)|(95/65) -Hard Cap 13:00-
The bike calories go down, while the Shoulder to Overhead reps increase, making this quad and shoulder burner tough to strategize when/how to break up the barbell movement. It's gonna hurt so good no matter what you do'.
