Post Bench Loads and Workout Rounds Completed 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 lineThree sets “medium” grip – thumbs distance from the middle knurlingThree sets “narrow” grip – index finger just off the smooth part of the middle of the bar.

Then perform 3 sets of 8 reps of pullups with either an overhand OR neutral grip.

For the conditioning workout, begin each round with one heavy ball slam.  Continue until you cannot complete a round.  Use an underhand or neutral grip.  You can kip.

ENDURANCE WORKOUT tonight at 6pm!
