Moving on From the Program

Busy day, so we worked out at 4pm instead of in the morning.

Conditioning

6 Sets

  • 30s BikeErg
  • 40s Rest

306-303-304-306-309-320m

Warm-up

Bench Press

  • 10×45
  • 6×95
  • 5×120

Chest

MAX Bench Press (140#)

Suffered through 40!

100 Push-ups

Went 14×5 and 10×3 for a time of 3:39, which is one of my best.

We were supposed to hit nine sets of max bench next, but decided we’re not feeling this program this time around. Twice a week for chest is limiting us from doing other areas of the body and it’s so much bench volume.

6 Sets

  • 12 Double DB Skull Crushers (25#)
  • 1:00 Rest
