Power Lift #1
Run 1 mile TT
After yesterday’s lower-body focus, we’re going full-on bro sesh today! The original programming was for us to do our one rep max bench test, followed by a 1-mile time trial run, but it’s going to be 107 degrees today.
Instead of a requirement, the 1 mile time trial will be totally optional! If you’d rather just bench press today, go nuts! If you’ve got a hankering for some high heat running, check out the following:
For the mile TT, open up around 85 percent, try to stride out the next 400 m (80 percent), hold onto your pace for the next 400 m (an increased effort level here will likely be the same pace as your prior round), and then really ramp it up for the last leg (90+ percent). Keep shoulders loose, pump the elbows, and pull with the hamstrings.
