Strength Cycle: Post-Open Cycle – Week 1 of 5
4 Zero Bounce Deadlift @ 70-80% of 1RM
*The *zero bounce* deadlift will keep your ego in check. Focus on control through the entire movement, rather than strictly shooting for big numbers.
5 x “Tall Landing” Box Jump – max height while still landing with your hips above your knees. No running/walking start. You don’t even need a tall box for this… you can also land with straight legs on a *high-ish* box for the same stimulus. Step down and repeat.
2/1, 4/2, 6/3, 8/4, etc…
2-DB Squats – L: 25/15; Spl: 35/25; S: 50/35
Burpee Pullup; Spl/S: BMU
*This one should have you moving quickly for the first half of the workout until the rep scheme starts to mandate you partition things. The dumbbells should be on the lighter side to allow for bigger sets
