Reminder prior to beginning this training week:If you have not watched through our concept, strategy, and "Lexicon" videos on the WBTV section of the site, please do so! Some of the things mentioned and described are important components of each and every progress-minded training week we ever participate in. Thank you! Additionally: Please remember that if the training needs to be changed based on access, stress, time, etc, there are always ways to stay in the intended "progress curve" by being sure that any adjustments still adhere to the movement pattern/ rep scheme/ energy system of the designated training day! Having such a deep well of sensible scaling options always makes it possible to find and apply what we're looking for.
(Specialty warm-up: 10 thorough dowel partial pull-over, 5L, 5R kettlebell back squat, 5L, 5R kettlebell row, 3 double kettlebell swing clean) Back squat 1 x 5 @ (up to) 60% of 2RM, each with 5/1000 @ top (fact-finding) 3 x 5 @ (up to) 75%, each with 3/1000 @ top 1 x 7 @ 60% 1 x 9L, 9R @ (minimum) 1/2 BW (as kettlebell back squat), each with 5/1000 @ top Rest as needed between sets, assess position, and if a set requires interruption, make as minor a weight adjustment as possible prior to the next. Reminder- always, but especially during times in which our brains may be more training-ready than our bodies: The strategy of the increase is more important than the actual percentage. If 75% feels like 105%, then it is not the correct weight in order to ensure progress, safety, and enjoyment of the training day. This is not referring to positional, constitutional, or scheme-adjustments- just, percentages and weight. When scheme is listed as “3 x 5″, it always refers to “Sets” x “Reps”. Reminder: Position and organized execution always govern weight, and below parallel is not a suggestion. Today: Perform 5 double kettlebell front squat or tipped-forward mace squat @ scheme-appropriate/ accessory weight immediately following each set of back squat, and then take reasonable rest. Then, 30- 20- 10 of: Kettlebell row (Split evenly between arms, in any manner you choose) Kettlebell swing (Recommended at minimum 1/2 BW) 30 of each, then 20 of each, and so on. Weight selected
