WHITE BOARD BRIEF
Target | Build to an 8-rep max.
We’re starting the week off with a high volume, heavy day.
These heavier loads are easier to navigate well for 3-5 reps, but require effort and focus in the later reps.
Start around 70% of our 1-rep deadlift and build to an unbroken 8-rep max with few errors. Take pauses in between reps with the bar at the hang, as you take in coaching cues for the next few reps. Work hard to make those corrections mid-set.
Only to continue to add weight, if the reps are solid. If you struggle to move the load well or fail to implement mid-set corrections, you’ll need to redo that load with better technique before attempting to go any heavier.
To save space, partner up and share barbells after the warm-up.
