Workout of the Day
Heavy 3 then, 80% AMRAP
This is the 2nd Heavy 3 then AMRAP Bench Press exposure this cycle. We performed the same workout week 2 which if you were here, you should reference. Ways to see improvement from week 2 would be any one or combination of the following attributes:
– Getting a heavier weight on your heavy 3
– Getting more reps on your AMRAP at the same weight as week 1
– Performing the AMRAP at a higher weight than week 1
– Technique feels better
– Same weights feel lighter
In roughly 5 total sets, work up to a heavy 3 on the Bench Press, then take your highest successful 3rep weight, drop to 80% and perform 1 AMRAP set. The AMRAP should leave you with 0-1 reps in reserve.
4 Progressive Sets of:
8-12e Weighted Step-Overs
8-12 DB Pull Overs
1:00e Side Plank
Work through 4 progressively more challenging sets of the triplet.
For the Step Overs, hit full extension on both legs at the top of each rep.
