    5 x 5 @ (up to) 80% of 2RM
    1 x 10 @ 60% of 2RM, each with a full 3/1000 in top position

    If a set requires interruption, make as minor a weight adjustment as possible prior to the next. When scheme is listed as “1 x 10″, it always refers to “Sets” x “Reps”. Reminder: Position and organized execution always govern weight, and top position of each lift always includes a rigid stop of motion.

    Today: Perform 25 kettlebell swing @ 1/4 BW + 5 inchworm immediately following each set of deadlift, and rest as needed after the three movements are complete.

    Then, 5 aggressive minutes of:

    2 Push-up
    10 Medicine ball throw
    @ 10/ 12lbs. W, 14/ 16lb. M

    Move with deliberateness and intent; No lazy push-up, no passive throws.

    There is no value to lackadaisical, un-powerful power movements. Hurt the wall, hurt the ball, empty the tank.

    And then, “Time under tension”:

    25 Goblet squat @ 35lb. W, 55lb. M + 50 Abmat sit-up + 25 cat/ cow stretch

    Abmat sit-up is any variation you choose, and adjusted between them as desired. Mind position and mechanics, and draw value. Keep rest to :15 sec. or less, no more than twice.

    Reminder! (Almost) all movements referenced above are linked to high-quality video demonstrations/ explanations!
    Please use them to your advantage!
