Strength Cycle: Cycle 3 – Test Week

Strength/Skill
In 16min:
Find 5RM Back Squat
*We’re getting closer and closer to the Open which means it’s time to work on both maximal strength and the ability to repeat a high percentage of your maximal strength for reps. Shoot for a few pounds less than what you hit last week for your 3RM.

WOD
3 Rounds
12 2-DB Devils Press – L: 25/15; Spl: 35/25; S: 50/35
Row/Ski 500/400m or Bike 1100/900m or Run 400m
*Don’t crush yourself in the first row/ski/bike. You have to find that sweet spot of intensity. Going too hard too early in this piece could have a way of wrecking the rest of your workout. Scale the dumbbell weight so you move steadily and quickly.
