Workout of the Day
A1) Sumo Deadlift
A2) Single Arm Tall Kneeling DB Press
3 x 6-10 ea side
Rest about 1 min between exercises.
Use your training notes from last week to guide you. Ideally both exercises should be heavier today.
For the deadlift we will use wave loading. If you were here last week, aim to start your set of 6 reps a bit heavier than the 6 you did last week. If you weren’t, start with a challenging weight for the set of 6 and increase load for each work set as the reps decrease. The final set is intended to be the same or heavier than the first.
Here is an example:
1-3 warm up sets: 115×8, 145×4, 165×2
15-9-6 reps for time of:
CTB Kipping Pull-Ups
The deadlift weight should be moderate here, such that you could do the round of 15 reps in 1-2 sets. It will definitely be lighter than any of your working sets on the sumo today!
Find a good hollow position at the bottom of each tuck up.
The CF Open is fast approaching! If you plan to participate, hold yourself to the standard now as good practice — make sure your chest makes visible, physical contact with the bar on every rep of your pull-ups today.
Pull Up Scaling:
A. CTB 9-6-3
B. regular kip 15-9-6
C. strict 9-6-3
D. jumping pull-ups, full volume
