3 x 5
Warm up and perform 3 x 5 at 90% of your heavy 5 from Week 1.
5/3/1 (1 Week):
75% x 5
85% x 3
95% x 1+
These percentages are based on your Training Max (or TM). The final set (the 95% set this week) is done for max reps, stopping 2 shy of failure. The goal is between 8 and 15 reps. If you fail at fewer than 8 reps, then reduce your TM by 10%. If you get to 20 reps, then increase your TM by 10%. Read more about the 5/3/1 here, and use this calculator if you don’t have a true 1RM.

Register Now for the Pelvic Floor Health Workshop!
Iron Maidens Lift n’ Learn presents:
A Pelvic Floor Health Workshop
November 13, 2016 from 2:00-4:30pm
Do your hips ever feel a little unstable at the bottom of your squat? Are you fastidious about making a trip to the bathroom before that heavy Deadlift… because you learned the hard way? Do you sometimes feel pressure in your pelvis on a max set of 5?
The health of your pelvic floor is part of the equation here! Correct pelvic floor engagement is an essential, but often overlooked component of lifting, and everyday life.
This team taught workshop aims to shed light on what exactly constitutes the pelvic floor, how to strengthen it, and engage it under load. Our goal is to provide you with the tools to cultivate healthy pelvic floor function and prevent dysfunction.
You will walk away with:
- A basic understanding of pelvic floor anatomy
- Exercises you can do at home or as part of your warm-ups to engage and strengthen the pelvic floor, including breathing and bracing techniques
- An understanding of how to apply engagement under load
This workshop is for women only.
Limited to 25 participants
$75 registration fee
