MAIN EVENT:

 

1) Squat (5’s week)

 

[All numbers are based off of 90% of your 1-RM.  For example, your first warm-up set is based off of 40% of 90% of your 1-RM.  If you’re working off of a 185 1-RM Max, all of your set weights will be based off of 90% of 185 (which works out to 165). Your first set weight is 40% of 165, your second set weight is 50% of 165, and so on]

 

Set 1 – 40% x 5 Reps

Set 2 – 50% x 5

Set 3 – 60% x 3

Set 4 – 65% x 5

Set 5 – 75% x 5

Set 6 – 85% x 5+ (5 reps is your goal.  Anything after 5 reps is bonus/fun.  Stop 1-2 reps short of failure)

 

 

ASSISTANCE:

 

2A) Good Mornings 4 x 10

Focus on form here and not so much on weight.  Focus on kicking your hips back and feeling tension in your glutes and hamstrings…

2B) Weighted Lunges 4 x 10/leg

 

3) Abs

A few x A lot
