Workout of the Day
A. Back Squat
This is tomorrow’s rep scheme. Aim to load heavier than the previous exposure (6-5-4-6).
Every 2:30 x 5 sets:
6 Touch and Go Deadlifts + 4 Tall Box Jumps (step down)
If you were here for week 1, you might aim to work at around 75% of your heavy triple. That’s a guideline, not a rule. The intent is to move a heavy-ish load for 30 reps, with a focus on bar speed and jumping power. Immediately after the 6th deadlift, move to your box for the jumps. Use a box that allows you to land with the knees and hips either fully or mostly extended. Soft boxes are a great idea here! #savetheshins
C. Push Jerk
Work up to a heavy-ish set of 5 reps, and then back off for two more sets of 10 at lighter weight. Practice efficiently cycling the barbell.
A1. 4 sets x 2 Handstand Kick Up (+hold) OR Wall Walks
A2. 4 sets x 4-8 Strict Knees to Elbows OR Strict Toes To bar
Athlete’s choice here, or mix and match. On the KTE/TTB, work on using the straight-arm-push of the lats to lever your chest and shoulders behind the plane of the bar and elevate the hips.
