– What the client needs to know:
Today we are building to a 2RM in the Floor Press – make sure to progressively build in weight over the course of 9 sets. Our conditioning work consists of a triplet of box jumps, rows, and thrusters – keep your effort a bit lower so you’re able to stay consistent for all 4 rounds. There is 60s of active recovery at the end of each round to get your HR down.
– What the coach needs to know:
Today we are building to a 2RM in the Floor Press with the goal of matching our last 1RM. The floor press is a great variation to improve triceps/lockout. Build over the course of 9 sets making logical jumps in weight. Our conditioning work today is a chance to focus on quality – don’t worry about time and worry more about efficiency with movements. Barbell loading should be light today and allow for UB sets for ALL 4 rounds.
