Back Squat (3 x 10 @ 10/5 lbs heavier than last week)

Week 2 of our Back Squat cycle. Last week we established a baseline of sorts with our 3 x 10. Today we should add 10lbs for men and 5lbs for women to last weeks weights. Ideally, we will maintain this progression as we move through the cycle. All 3 sets should be the same weight.

Metcon (AMRAP - Rounds and Reps)

AMRAP x 5 Min
7 Bar Facing Burpee
7 Thrusters      95/65

RX+ 115/80

This will feel like a long 5 minutes.  Our goal should be to maintain a steady intensity throughout, with a strong finish

STRENGTH

Deadlift (Week 1:   1.1.1.1.1 x 3 sets @ 75%)

This deadlift cycle will have a strong emphasis on performing single lifts off the ground. We want a good set up, locked in core, then a quality pull AND lower back to the ground. Rest 3-4 seconds between each rep and about 2 minutes between sets. So week 1 will feature 15 QUALITY single reps of both up and down on the lift. Today may seem a bit "easy" at first, but we're simply acclimating ourselves to the volume, we will increase each week. Keep all sets the same across today.

Minute 1:  15 Sit Ups (Abmat or GHD)
Minute 2:  :40 Superman Hold
Minute 3:  Turkish Get Up x 2  (1/1)
Minute 4:  L Sit Hang x :20

The Turkish Get Up should be challenging.
Modify L Sit to a bent knee L Hang

STRENGTH

Back Squat (3 x 10 @ 65%)

Expect a 3 x 10 rep scheme each week of this cycle.  The weight stats the same for all 3 sets. Every week there will be a slight ascension in weight, as our bodies adapt and get stronger. A good rest marker is about 2:30-3:00 between sets. That's 30 quality squats each Monday, so please take the time to take care of yourself, a little extra mobility, quality food intake, sleep, etc each day will go a long way towards making the most of this cycle.
We tested this earlier this year and found it to be very beneficial.  So lets get to work and get STRONG!

*Note, we're skipping the normal testing week, as the vast majority of us know, or have an idea as to our max. If you don't know it, the coach on the floor will suggest a good starting weight for this week. The good news is, we will have plenty of time to adjust up or down as necessary if week 1 is too easy or too hard.

Ascend the Z Press slightly if needed after moderate first set. Aim for UB on the wall sit.
