WHITE BOARD BRIEF
Target | Lift a relatively heavy load for 3 reps across 5 sets. 80%+ across all 5 sets.
Today is a heavy lifting day. Compare your loads to the 5 rep x 5 sets workout we did on Nov. 10. You should be able to lift a little bit more weight than you did on that day.
In the warm-up, we will build up to a relatively heavy weight, which will be your starting weight for today. This weight should be something that consumes all of your energy and focus. We will lift 80%+ across all 5 sets.
In order to keep the class moving and give the workout more structure, we are going to perform 3 back squats every 4 minutes. This will give us about 20 minutes to complete the workout.
