Heavy 5 @2011
80% x 9-12 x 2
Warm up to a single heavy set of 5 reps at tempo, slightly (5-10lbs) heavier than the 3 x 5s we did a few weeks ago. This should be done with no misses and perfect form. The goal is to build success at moving heavy weights with near perfect form, so this should not be a true 5RM. Finish with 2 sets of 9-12 reps at 80% of what you did for the heavy 5. These sets should be challenging but leave a rep or two in the tank. Have spotters in place on all work sets.

Overhead Stability: A Strength Training Must Breaking Muscle
From 400 Pounds to Wodapalooza Morning Chalk Up
Any day that starts off with bench pressing has to be a good day, amirite?
Heavy set at 125, drop sets 100x12x2. I am very glad I made myself do this weight, was thinking of being a little more conservative. It was hard but doable.
The WOD, on the other hand, I feel like I should’ve scaled a little more than I did. I did ring rows instead of kipping pullups (my hand is most of the way healed up, but I wasn’t gonna tempt fate) but given how heavy the barbell felt and how my score was relative to everyone else’s in 7 AM, I’m thinking this was intended as a faster workout than I made it. I was 4 reps shy of 3 rounds at the Rx weight.
