March 5

Starting a new cycle today. I’m gonna program right along the lines of the conjugate article i sent out. We are going to have Mondays being our max effort lower body day and Thursdays being our max effort upper body day. Wednesdays will primarily be running so we can recover a little for the upper body days. Tuesday and Friday will be high intensity lower weight metcons.

The programming goes in smaller three week cycles for the heavy lifts. For example we will do mainly shoulder press for the first three weeks of max upper body lifts, then the next three weeks will focus on bench. On the weeks that we have mainly shoulder press for heavy lifts I’ll try to program less shoulders and more pushup type stuff in the metcons.

Max Effort Back Squat 5-5-3-3-1-1 (does not have to be a 1 RM, work up to something that is heavy, but if you feel good try and set a new PR)

2 X Max weighted back extensions.
30 pistols

100 hollow rocks
