Workout of the Day Friday May 26th 2023


A.) Strict Press (5-3-3-2-1-1-1)

Looking for a 1 rep max today to see where everyone is at after this past cycle. I recommend the rep scheme above, but you’re welcome to do whatever you like to hit it. You should be able to hit your max in about 5-6 total sets.  So make appropriate jumps.

ALL of the sets above are “Working Sets.” A true set starts at the RPE numbers prescribed above. Warm up sets DO NOT count towards the sets listed  above.

Recommended Warm-Up Routine:
1.) Spend 5-10min. on any kind of low impact cardio
2.) Spend 5min. either foam rolling the primary muscle groups for the day or doing a few stretches that will benefit the primary lift for the day.
3.) Complete 1-3 sets of every movement above with lighter weights than your working sets. (For most of you, this all that’s needed)

How to read “RPE”
RPE means “rate of perceived excursion.” It’s measured on a scale between 1 and 10. 1 is the lowest and 10 is the highest. When it says an RPE of 7, that means that you left 3 reps in the tank. And an RPE of 10 Means that you hit absolute failure. Make sure you truly hit these numbers! This makes or breaks results!
