Workout of the Day
If you performed Murph on Monday and your legs are wrecked, we recommend you deadlift 3 work sets of 5 reps at a moderate load today. You’ll have an opportunity on Friday to perform the squat programming or you can skip this week and pick up next week.
85% x 2 Reps x 6 Sets
The weight is up 5% from last week but the reps have been cut in half. Move well and try to have some speed coming out of the bottom.
5 Sets x 3 Reps Across
Perform 3-5 progressive warm-up sets followed by 5 sets of 3 reps at the same weight. Try to go 5-10lbs heavier than last week.
EMOM x 5 Rounds
A: 12-15 Seated DB Presses
B: Floater exercise
A: Bike 1:00
B: Jog 270m
B: 8-12 Weighted Step-Overs
Use the first two rounds of this EMOM to warm-up and the latter three as harder work sets. If you’re recovering from Murph make this feel like an easy and consistent effort.
