Back squat – 3×5; adding weight to each set from 5/13
So way back when we started the 5/3/1 program we used our single from 2 weeks before. Going through the percentages, some of us found that they were doable, while others had a tough time completing the reps and sets. This week we are going to simply work off prior sessions. Look back to 5/13 and try to add weight to each set. Back then it was 1×5@65%, 1×5@75% and then 1×5@85% so look at those numbers and try to add between 5 and 10 pounds.
20 DB step-ups (50/35#)(40/25#)
20 DB snatches
A heavy unilateral focused day. Coming in from the run and getting right on those step up will bring us back to how it felt in the open to go from walking lunges to step-ups. Today, we will revisit that open workout even more and use the Open standards for the step-ups. One dumbbell anywhere you want; in your hand beside your leg, in your hand in the front rack position, on the shoulder, or even behind the head. Only rule is it cannot rest on your leg.
The DB snatches must alternate arms every rep as a standard, but as a performance cue, think about the height of your hips every rep. Do not keep them too high and make this a back dominant exercise. Bring the hips down as you would in a barbell snatch and make this movement about the leg and hip drive. Your back will thank me in the morning.
