3X5 Back Squat
3X5 Shoulder Press

3XMax rep strict Pullups
3XMax rep GHDs
3XMax Rep Dips

Starting weight for this first day is 60% of you 1 rep max for each squat and press. All 3 sets are done at the same weight. It’s probably going to feel light so make sure you go full range of motion.

For the 3X max rep work, try for full range of motion, if you can get 3 sets of 15 this time add weight next time these come up. Scale as necessary


Oct. 28

Try to find the rest of your 1 RMs.


10 rounds for time of:
3 Handstand push-ups
225 pound Deadlift, 6 reps
12 Pull-ups
24 Double-unders

Oct. 27

In preparation for starting the strength phase of our program next monday we need to find some Maxes. Deadlift, press, bench, front squat, and back squat.

If you found new PRs this week there is no need to re-do them. I can come over at lunch today and hopefully we can get through some of these 1 RMs today, and maybe finish them tomorrow if necessary.

Randy, Ryan: I was planning to have us all start at 60% of our maxes for our 3X5s, how was that for a starting point when you guys did your programs? We will be hitting each exercise probably only once a week, so maybe we can do larger jumps in weight, like 10 lbs a week until it starts getting really rough?

I plan to run this starting Monday and going through at least February. Taking out some days or weeks for vacation we will probably get 12-16 weeks of this, maybe longer depending on weather.

The strength work is going to consist of back squats, front squats, press, bench press, deadlift, and maybe some rotating accessory work like RDLs or bent over rows. Cleans are going to be saved for metcons since we don’t have bumpers to really go heavy with.
