Leave a rep or two in the tank. We’ll do 12s again next week, so these should not be max effort sets. Use full a full range of motion and control.
3×5 Linear Progression
Start your linear progression light enough to increase the weight by 5-10 lbs each week over the next 8 weeks.

5 rounds for time:
9 Deadlifts 155/110
6 Hang Power Cleans 155/110
3 Push Press 155/110
The load on this riff on the benchmark workout “DT” should be medium heavy for you. For almost everyone, it will be the Push Press that’s the limiter. In it’s best capacity, the barbell complex is done unbroken. If breaking the reps up, consider doing 8 of the Deadlifts, then taking the 9th into your first Hang Power Clean. Same strategy for taking the Hang Power Cleans into the Push Press: do 5+1 then aim to make all the Push Presses unbroken. Jerks are no reps today for the shoulder-to-overhead.

Sign Up for Our Seasonal Fish CSA! Discount for Early Birds
Last summer, we brought in a new fish CSA partner and were blown away by the quality and freshness of their fish! Lucky for you, registration is now open for the 2016 season, which runs weekly from June 11 til late fall.
Big City Fish Share, now in its fifth season, delivers sustainably caught, never-frozen, super-fresh seafood from Montauk to New York City. You can sign up for a weekly share of either 1 pound or 2 pounds of filleted fish, littleneck clams, or oysters. Sign up by June 7th, and lock in $16 per pound for the whole season. After June 7th, the price will go back to $17 per pound.
The delivery window will be Saturday mornings, 10am to 12pm, starting June 11. This is a weekly, not monthly, share.
Customers can sign up for 4 deliveries at a time, and can easily place their orders on hold through the website if they go out of town. Any funds left in your account at the end of the season will be returned to you by check. Expect a good variety of fish, including big-eye tuna, squid, founder, fluke, swordfish, black sea bass, bluefish, porgy, and monkfish.
Any other questions? E-mail bigcityfishshare [at] gmail.com. For general CSA questions, e-mail Michele at mignyc [at] gmail.com.
