This week, we’re going to keep increasing the weight on our 5×5 strength cycle as well as return to Week 1’s metcons to see if we can put up a better performance than last time. So let’s get to it, boys.

Week 3 (of 4 week cycle):

Warmup for all daysJoe DeFranco’s Limber 11. Get yo body all supple and ready like, boy.

Emphasis on strength days should be on pushing heavy ass weight with ample rest. Please use proper form, bros (see Youtube for a wealth of video resources on this subject).

Emphasis on hypertrophy days should be on moving the muscle through it’s full range of motion, using a weight that’s relatively “easy,” focusing very much on proper form, and feeling DAT PUMP while doing so.
