Notes:  Use the first 3 sets as acclimation sets to prepare you for the final sets of 8 reps.  These sets should be heavier than your 10 sets from last week.  Rest no more than 2:30 between sets.  New athletes should focus on quality over load and use a box if needed to ensure quality depth and form.  Experienced athletes should attempt to perform 70-80% on the 8 sets, but remember quality first!

3 reps @ 85-90%
