This week will be an opportunity to reset both physically and mentally after 5 weeks of the Open. Please take this time to rest and rehab any niggling injuries, aches or pains so that you feel great going into the start of the next cycle beginning April 1.

A.
Every minute, on the minute, for 5 minutes:
Front Squat
*Set 1 – 2 reps @ 60%
*Set 2 – 2 reps @ 65%
*Set 3 – 2 reps @ 70%
*Set 4 – 1 rep @ 75%
*Set 5 – 1 rep @ 80%

Rest one minute, and then…

Every two minutes, for 10 minutes (5 sets):
Front Squat
*Set 6 – 85% x 1 rep
*Set 7 – 85-90% x 1 rep
*Set 8 – 90+% x 1 rep
*Set 9 – 90+% x 1 rep
*Set 10 – 90+% x 1 rep

For sets 6-10, let feel dictate loading. The goal is to establish today’s “heavy” lift. “Heavy” for the day is the load immediately before that at which you would lose proper mechanics and positioning. If you determine that you’ve reached that load for the day prior to set 10, stop there. You’ll have lots of opportunities over the upcoming weeks to hit new 1-RMs if and when your body is feeling good, so don’t push when your body isn’t responding to the stimulus.

B.
Every 2 minutes, for 20 minutes (10 sets):
Clean
*Sets 1-2 = 3 reps @ 60%
*Sets 3-4 = 2 reps @ 70%
*Sets 5-6 = 1 rep @ 80%
*Sets 7-8 = 1 rep @ 90%
*Sets 9-10 = 1 rep @ 95%

C.
Against a 2-minute clock…
15/10 Calorie Assault Bike
15 Kettlebell Swings (32/24 kg)
Max Dumbbell Box Step Overs (50/35 lb to 24″/20″)

100-Meter Suitcase Carry (Left Arm)
