Get ready for one of the best day’s of the Summer! Friends and family welcome!


A.) Back Squat (4 x 3)
3 at 60% of 1RM
3 at 70% of 1RM
3 at 80% of 1RM
Max Unbroken Reps at 90% of 1RM (shooting for more than 3) *No resting at the top of any reps for more than 1sec. Constant movement.

Optional Superset:
3-5 Heavy Barbell Hip Thrusts

Rest 2min. After These Sets Today. Need more rest for these high percentages.

B.) For Time:
This is one of my ALL TIME favorite conditioning pieces. Depending on the weight you choose, this can be extremely challenging! Have fun. Go HARD. And enjoy πŸ™‚
100 Barbell Thrusters
*At the top of every minute, perform 5 burpees! Start with burpees!

Men’s weight: 115lbs.
ADV Men’s Weight: 135lbs.

Women’s Weight: 75lbs.
ADV Women’s Weight: 95lbs.


In Teams of 2:


Calorie Row
DB Deadlifts (70/50s)

Rules of this workout:

1.) You can break it up into ANY rep scheme you like.

2.) You must complete a minimum of 100 reps of EACH movement. After that, you can do whatever you like to reach the 1000 rep mark. For example, you could do 100 of each and then do the next 600 reps at just the burpee station… Prob not the best idea, but it is an option πŸ˜‰

3.) ONLY 1 athlete can work at a time.

EXCITED to see times and strategies on this!

Time CAP: 40min

Set 3: 95% Effort, then strip half the weight off and do a burnout set to failure.
Set 4: Same as set 3


The goal on these movements is to get ALL 3 sets for 8 reps. Once you can do that, you add 5% NEXT WEEK. That new load should knock you down to 3 sets at 6-7 reps, but eventually, you will be strong enough to do it for 3 sets of 8 again (might take a week or 2). Then we add another 5% and repeat the process.

NOTE: 3 x 6 x 95 means 3 working sets, 6 reps performed per set, and 95 is the weight used for each set, for sake of the example.
Week 1 β€” 3 x 6 x 95lbs
Week 2 β€” 3 x 7 x 95lbs
Week 3 β€” 3 x 8 x 95lbs.
Week 4 β€” DELOAD
Week 5 β€” 3 x 6 x 100lbs.
Week 6 β€” 3 x 7 x 100lbs.
Week 7 β€” 3 x 8 x 100lbs.
and so on….


“RPE” means rate of perceived exertion. RPE of 10 means you can not do any more reps. This is max effort. RPE of 7 means that you’re lifting to the point, where if you had to, you could get 3 more reps. So it’s still difficult, but not EVERYTHING you have. REP of 8 means you have to 2 reps left in the tank and so on..

NO WARM UP SETS are included in any of these sets and reps, so be sure to do 1-2 sets in each section to get warm, but do not count them as “working sets.”
