Post Bench PressLoad and Workout Rounds to Comments
For the strength segment, the goal is to move the weight as quickly as possible for your three reps across all 9 sets, particularly on the way up. Rep speed should be roughly 1 second down and 1 second up. If you cannot perform all of your reps at this speed then you need to use a lighter load…regardless of whether you’re at 65% or not. Perform three sets “wide” grip – pinkies on the outside line. Three sets “medium” grip – thumbs distance from the middle knurling. Three sets “narrow” grip – index finger just off the smooth part of the middle of the bar.
This is a Strength & Conditioning Benchmark Workout. Twenty minutes is quite a long time. Pick a score to shoot for and go for it. 20 rounds is an awesome score! If you complete the movements RX make sure to log your score on the Top Ten Board in the green room.
