THIS WEEK AT THE GYM:
NCX: We started a new 8 week strength cycle last week.. The main lifts we will be building towards are a 3 rep Bench Press, Back Squat and Push Jerk.
This week you are getting after week #2 of 8. As mentioned in class, this is a bit of a different look and feel than Wendler, we won’t be following specific percentages, but instead going by feel and utilizing different complexes, tempo’s and pauses.
TIME TO GET FLEXY!
Coach Alex's WOW?: 'Each workout is awesome - straight up. Some weeks the WOW clearly stands out if it’s a bit of a milder week, but not this time. I’m gonna have to shine a spotlight on Friday’s'.
2:00 ON / 1:00 OFF
UNTIL ALL WORK IS COMPLETED...
60 Shoulder to Overhead (115/75)|(75/55) 80 Sit-Ups100 Box Jump Overs (24/20)
SCORE IS TOTAL TIME
'A large amount of work that needs to be completed, but in a specific time constraint. How hard can you go for 2 minutes balanced with how well can you recover in only 1, repeatedly. I hope we learned a lesson from the story of Icarus!'
And there you have it, a week of greatness and a nice little reading suggestion for you all too.
Go get em.
