Thursday: Double Strength


Strength:

Back Squat
5-5-5-5-5
(same weight as Tuesday; weights will increase in future weeks, no changing weights in the middle of sets, 60 seconds between sets)

and

Shoulder Press
5-5-5-5-5
(6o to 70%, 60 seconds between sets, no changing weights)*

*I realize that the last two days have had shoulder exercises in the WOD, the weight on the shoulder press is supposed to be light, so I thought I could squeeze in overhead lunges yesterday and still have Shoulder Press today for strength…but if you feel like your shoulders are too taxed from the last two days you can use between 40-50% of your 1RM.

Optional WOD
This WODs is not required. Do them on your own (as long as you donโ€™t interfere with the rest of the class). Trainers will not coach you through the WOD or time you. These WODs are NOT to be done after the last class in the morning or the evening**

4 Rounds of:

Rowing as many meters as possible in 1 minute
rest 3 minutes

Record each round separately
