Notes: Welcome to the start of our annual power lifting cycle! We are going to be prepping for an in house power meet (Jan 19th, mark your calendars) where you get to set a great strength benchmark for the start of the year. Leading up to the meet, you’ll notice that the strength days tend to focus more on back squat, bench press and deadlift. Over the next 10 weeks we’ll be performing close to a dozen training maxes (today included) where the intent is to increase in load to a heavy weight over multiple sets. For the next 10 weeks, failing a heavy rep will come with a 30 burpee penalty!!! Ok, not really but that should be the idea, not one failed rep in the next 10 weeks. There will be more accessory work than you are used to and if you can’t fit it all in in the hour, that is ok. Prioritize good movements and get done what you can. Quality of work is more important than quantity but if you can work efficiently, now is the chance to get quantity as well!
