So far this month, we’ve tested compound lifts above parallel and unilateral leg work, however, not a squatting movement. Today’s session will give you a chance to max out on each rep range to get a feel for your strength capacity, finishing out with a heavy
In other words: ONE REP MAX DAY!!!
We want each set today to be max effort, which means we are going to take plenty of time to warm up to your starting weights and also plenty of rest between sets (3-5 min.). If you fail a set at a desired weight, you'll have plenty of time to re-attempt it. If you get to the end and they have enough reserve or time for another heavy single to max out, today would be the day ;)
Today, the Thrusters are taken off of the rack so you don’t have to worry about the Squat Clean portion (you're welcome). If advanced athletes are wishing to get prepped for the Open and would get a heavy enough stimulus out of testing a Squat Clean Thruster, go nuts!
