Fitness Strength

Every 2 minutes for 16 minutes, perform Back Squats at the following reps:
6-5-4-3-2-2-1-1

Notes: Slightly different this week!  If this is your first time and you know your percentages, start around 60% and attempt to add load every round. Record your heaviest 1 rep.

Advanced Strength

Every 2 minutes, for 10 minutes (5 sets):  Back Squat
*Set 1 – 6 reps @ 65%
*Set 2 – 4 reps @ 75%
*Set 3 – 2 reps @ 85%
*Set 4 – 2 reps @ 90%
*Set 5 – 1 rep @ 95%

Rest 3 minutes, then perform one set of Back Squat x Max Unbroken Reps @ 90%

Notes: Same as last week with a higher final percentage. Attempt to perform more reps with this heavier weight! All percentages should go off of your most recent 1RM, not a weight that you think you could have hit for a 1-RM. For the max effort set, you are allowed only one full breathing cycle at the top of the lift – exhale, inhale, brace and descend – once more rest is taken at the top, the set is over.

Notes:  Prescribed is 55/35 kbs to an overhead position and chin over bar pullups.  If you can perform these movements prescribed safely, then go for it!  Even if you have to perform one pullup at a time.  New athletes and those with mobility issues should perform russian style swings and/or ring rows.

So proud of The James McCoy, preforming his best at the American Open this past weekend!!
