MONDAY, JAN 4
Every 2:00 x 6:
3 push press
Hit +/-3 warm-up sets so you can start your working sets at a moderately heavy load. Build in weight as needed over the 6 sets.
Rig is up so we are going to lift from the rack! You may go from the ground if you want to work on you clean, but if you plan on deadlifting heavy Tuesday, let’s reduce the amount of pulling from the floor today and just take it from the rack. Partner up as needed.
4/3 strict pull-ups
12 push press (95/65)
