February Schedule Changes
DON’T FORGET… NO FREE TRIALS NEXT WEEK AS WE WILL BE OUT OF TOWN
Did you read the email sent out last week? If not, please do so and make yourself aware of some upcoming schedule changes coming February 20th.
Free Trial Thursday
We will be on the Bench again picking up where we left off last week. This week, the rep scheme will go as follows…
- Quick off bench warm-up
- On bench warm-up: 15 reps (barbell) 10 reps (light weight) 5 reps (little more)
- Heavy Single X 3 rounds **This should be about 95% of your 1RM
- Then… 5X3 (5 sets of 3 reps) @ 85% of your 1RM
Keep Your Butt Down. Bench Press with your butt on the bench. Your lower back can come off the bench to keep you chest up. But your butt can’t or it’s a failed rep. Bench by pushing your feet into the floor, and your upper-back and glutes into the bench. Don’t just push from your feet.
No Butt Off Bench! Benching with your butt off the bench is cheating. It’s like turning your squats to half squats. It makes the weight easier to bench by decreasing the range of motion. Raising your butt off the bench gets you three red lights in powerlifting competitions. So keep that butt on the bench!
