3 x 5
Use 95% of Week 1’s heavy 5.
5/3/1 (5 Week):
65% x 5
75% x 5
85% x 5+
Your Training Max (TM) is used to base the percentages off of. Increase your TM 10 lbs above the previous 3 weeks. If you were above the recommended reps for the rep out sets, then increase your TM 15-20 lbs. The final set (the 85% set this week) is done for max reps, stopping 1-2 shy of failure. The goal is between 8 and 12 reps. Use a normal pace throughout the rep-out set and quit if you reach technical failure. Technical failure is the point at which you can move the weight from point A to point B but can no longer do so with acceptable technique. Use spotters on all work sets.

Web surfer dude says
Can someone fix the links on this post please. Thanks
I woke up this morning feeling so powerless, and I just want to say that I'm so incredibly grateful I was able to come to a place where I always feel strong and powerful and capable and supported by a community. I did back squats with Shawn this morning, and what she said is really staying with me: "Women need to be strong now."
Thank you, CFSBK, for making a really crappy day a little less so. <3 <3

Chris A. says
Peter! Good to hear from you!
Yes- agree with Kirby- it definitely helped to come to the gym today.
10am with Jeremy and Brett.
11 plus 6 Rx.
Sore and sad but happy I am surrounded by like-minded people. Big hugs and warmth to all xx
Whit H says
@Kirby, thanks for your post. Woke up devastated, scared, angry, sad, and a whole host of other emotions.
5×20 @ 35% (80#)
this happened. heart rate and breathing super jacked up but biofeedback still testing normal after each set. played with stance a bit, brett took some video. focused on ribcage neutral. no hip pain/discomfort today. rested about 2:30-3:00 b/t sets
18 minutes, sustainable pace:
:45 assault bike @ 60-62 RPM
4 push-up unbroken
2 D-Ball ground over shoulder (1R, 1L)
7 TTB unbroken
7 rounds + AB, Push-Ups, and DB in round 8
2:25, 2:25, 2:25, 2:20, 2:15, 2:25, 2:25
was intending to keep the 2:25 pace throughout and actually just messed up my math in the middle. slightly uncomfortable, but probably could push to 2:15-2:20 for each round.
When this nightmare is over, somebody please tell me.
Squatting today was the only peace my brain felt.

Noon class. I don't think I'm projecting too much when I say everyone just seemed kind of stunned. Getting to the gym and moving around is definitely a good thing you can do for yourself today… this was my first class in quite a while, heart rate got way up and I was sweating like crazy during warmups. I blame being tired, hungover, and depressed much more than absence.
Medium weight squats. I ran the last 7 miles of the marathon on Sunday with ever increasing knee pain and paid for it later, but everything felt 100% today, which is great. 225x5x3.
Modified the workout into obliion. 10 rounds 20#/10' w/ 95# deadlift, everything unbroken. This was still hard and I could feel my messed up hamstring during deadlifts, even at that weight.
Thank you CFSBK for today! Would have been really hard to get through a workout without people today!
Pause squatted 210 and RXed the Wod and did 10 rounds. Super hard but felt great!
Thank god for the gym at 8AM with Ro.
Back squats up to 3x5x150. two sessions in a row all at full depth. yipee.
Almost broke down after about 14 squats.
9 rounds exactly of the WOD with 135# deadlifts.
David Osorio says
Appreciate the kind words about people coming to the gym for a sense of relief.
I'm usually kind of a news junkie but I didnt want to read anything today.. Happy to commiserate with other folks at the gym. It's a very unusual day outside the gym, luckily it's business as usual at CFSBK.

Allie B says
Hbbs: 100×5, 115×5, 130 x8
Wod: 7 rounds + 3 deadlifts at 135. Took it easy today- goal was 6. I just didn't feel like going all out today.
<3 🙁 sigh. Only 3 years, 11 months and change. Let the countdown begin.
4 Rounds at home this morning:
– 30 sit ups
– 10 each side goblet reverse lunges off a step 20#
– 3 wide grip pull ups (unbroken)
– 10 push ups
– :30 hand stand hold
Yoga with Elaina this afternoon, followed by today's met-con solo:
12 wall balls 14#/ 10' – unbroken
6 deadlifts 155# – unbroken except the last 4 reps were singles
7 rounds + 12 wall balls + 4 deadlifts
I did all my working out alone today. I actually didn't leave home or talk to anyone in person until well into the afternoon, at which point I conversed only with Elaina for the most part. This helped.
I did a lot of singing (primarily Les Mis battle songs) and cleaning this morning, which also helped.
Samir Chopra says
Didn't 'teach' in any of my three classes today and just spent all the time talking to my students. Happy to come in to squat today and share my feels with my folks here.
