''Bench Press 5-5-5+'' & Jackelope (03.09.2012)

Warm-up Drills (03.09.2012)
Run 1200m
12-9-6 reps/seconds of each
Air Squats (facing wall)
Push-ups (CFGS)
:10 x L-sit or 10 x Hollow Rocks
-Shoulder Mobility**
-Sumo Squats
-Calf/Soleus Stretch
-Inchworms/Cobra Stretch

Notes: During today's Air Squats take note of the angle at which your feet happen to be bladed/pointed outboard prior to each rep. Shhhhh, trust us.
Yes, there will be much more to come on this very basic start position and how to identify and work with how small changes here can have a drastic impact on how our body communicates with and reacts to the ground its standing on. Patience...

''Bench Press 5-5-5+'' (03.09.2012)
Work through the following sets of Bench Press using the percentage based sets outlined below.
To determine loads multiply 1RM by .9 with percentages being derived from the resulting number.
The final set is a ''+'' set which means each athlete will attempt to execute as many additional repetitions as possible beyond the initial single rep.

5 x 40% (warm-up)
5 x 50% (warm-up)
3 x 60% (warm-up)
5 x 65%
5 x 75%
5+ x 85%

Notes: Athletes that have been previously taught the Close Grip Bench Press, Board Press, or Reverse Grip Bench Press should use that Bench Press variant for the following three weeks, however, whatever number PR # was established last week must be used to figure out all the weights for this week. Example: Athlete A picks Narrow Grip/Close Grip Bench Press but will still use his one rep max from last week even if it is a traditional Bench Press he performed. Yes... It makes it heavier.
