Work Your Weakness

– STRENGTH I – (7 Rounds for weight)

For load:

Snatch, clean or jerk:

5 reps x 2 sets @ 50-60%

4 reps x 3 sets @ 60-70%

3 reps x 2 sets @ 65-75%

– Welcome to week eight of our Strength I cycle. This is the final week of this cycle and it is considered a de-load week.

– Next week, we take a break from a structured cycle and then return on the week of March 4th.

– Use the same 1-rep-max to find your percentages.

– Take the jerks from a rack, and rest as needed between sets.

Back Squat (- STRENGTH II –
For load:
Back squat
10-8-8-6-6)

– Welcome to week four in our Strength II back squat cycle; this is a de-load week.

– Use a weight in each set so that you can maintain solid technique with very little deviation. This loading will vary for each athlete.

– Perform a new set every 3:00.

– STRENGTH III – (5 Rounds for weight)

5 sets:

5 bench presses

5 weighted dips

– Increase loading across as many sets as possible.

– Perform dips on rings or straight bars.

– Rest 2:00-3:00 between sets.

– Do not push to failure unless you have a spotter. If you do not have a spotter, you can still perform the session, but leave some gas in the tank to avoid failure.

Modifications

Bench press | Load, dumbbell bench or floor press

– SKILL I – (Time)

For time:

5 strict muscle-ups

20 GHD back extensions

4 strict muscle-ups

15 GHD back extensions

3 strict muscle-ups

10 GHD back extensions

2 strict muscle-ups

5 GHD back extensions

1 strict muscle-up

– 10:00-15:00.

– Work on strict ring muscle-ups, trying to complete them in 2 sets or less.

– Perform sustainable muscle-up sets. Don’t go unbroken in the first set if it will lead to failure later on.

– If you start failing early on, modify either the rep scheme or movement.

– It’s better to do fewer reps and avoid failure than to do more reps but take far longer due to failure or muscle fatigue.

Modifications

Ring muscle-up | Volume, kipping, strict chest-to-bar pull-up

Back extension | Hip extension, good morning (empty barbell)

– STAMINA I – (Time)

5 rounds for time:

24/30-calorie bike

– Rest 2:00 between rounds.

– Rounds in 2:30 or less. Advanced athletes push for sub-2:00.

– Use any available bike.

– Push as hard as possible on each round vs. pacing.

– If you use an Echo or Assault Bike, incorporate your arms as much as possible. On the C2 Bike, try and push through the heavy feeling in your legs.
