Post Press Loads and Metcon Time to Comments
For the strength segment,  we are starting a new 4 week cycle of the Wendler 5-3-1 Program (more details here).  “Working 1RM” is defined as 90% of your current 1RM.  If you are not sure of your current 1RM talk to your Coaches and they’ll help you determine it.  If you completed the previous 4 week cycle your working 1RM for this cycle should be set 5lbs heavier for the Press and Bench and 10lbs heavier for the Squat and Deadlift.  Note:  1st work set is 5 reps, 2nd is 3 reps, and final work set is for “max reps”.  You should not be going to absolute failure on this last set.

For the Metcon, scale Pullups up to Chest to Bar.  Sub 20 Abmat Situps for the GHD.  Scale Pushups up to Hand Release.

ENDURANCE WOD tonight at 6pm!  Bring a stopwatch or interval timer.
