Very good start to the week and a very good start to our 6 Week Training Cycle! So this is how the Strength Training is going to work… Mondays we will be performing Back Squats, Tuesdays we will be performing Shoulder Press and Thursdays we will be performing Deadlifts. This week (Week 1), we will be performing 5 Sets of 5 Reps at 65% of your 1 Rep Max for each movement. Your “6th Set” will be an all out effort to perform As Many Reps As Possible using the same weight. Week 2, we’re gonna move up to 70%, Week 3 will be 75%, Week 4 will be 80%, Week 5 will be 85% and Week 6 all of us will Re-Test the Lifts. I know sometimes, “POOP Happens!’ You can’t get into The Box for whatever reason… School, work, kids, traffic, etc etc… So if you miss a day, please make it up whenever you can. RCCF is very Strength Biased! I believe that if you are consitent with your Strength training, your Conditioning WODs, don’t really get any easier, but you become more efficient at “such and such” movement, which in turn allows you to do more work in less time, which is what we’re aiming for!
And, Strength Training is just straight up FUN!!! Think about how amazing it feels to “PR” on your Squat, Press, Deadlift, etc etc etc!!!
ALRIGHT… HERE WE GO!!!
5x5x5x5x5 (5 Sets of 5 Reps) at 65% of your 1 Rep Max
Using the same weight, perform 1 Max Rep Set

3 Power Cleans (Rx’d: M-135lbs/F-95lbs)
6 Push Ups
