Post Press Loads and Metcon Reps to Comments
For the strength segment, we are starting a new 4 week cycle of the Wendler 5-3-1 Program (more details here). “Working 1RM” is defined as 90% of your current 1RM. If you are not sure of your current 1RM talk to your Coaches and they’ll help you determine it. If you completed the previous 4 week cycle your working 1RM for this cycle should be set 5lbs heavier for the Press and Bench and 10lbs heavier for the Squat and Deadlift. Note: 1st work set is 5 reps, 2nd is 3 reps, and final work set is for “max reps”. You should not be going to absolute failure on this last set.
ENDURANCE WOD tonight at 6pm! Bring a stopwatch or interval timer!
