Wendler group pay attention – Mon 11.21.16
Wendler people, pay attention to the week 3 change in numbers.
Strength: Overhead Squat 2-2-2-2-2
Conditioning: 5 rounds for time:
– 5 Power Cleans
– 5 Front Squat
– 5 Shoulder to Overhead
– 200m Run
*Performance: 185/135#, Fitness: 155/105#, Health: As heavy as possible
*You can clean the last rep of power clean into the front squat, and you can thruster the last rep of front squat into overhead.
*Optional Strength: Wendler Week 3 Day 1:
Percentages are off your TRAINING MAX, which is 90% of your true max:
– Back Squat
75% x 5
85% x 3
95% x 1+
(When you see 5+, 3+, 2+,or 1+, that means you do the max reps you can manage with that weight, with the goal being at least 5 reps. If you go higher than you’re attempting to set a personal rep record at that weight, but the lifts should maintain the strictest of form.)
This week is Thanksgiving, so the schedule may be a little different. Between family coming by, shopping that needs to be done, NFL games, etc., this will be the schedule for the week:
Mon 11/21 – Wed 11/23: normal schedule
Thanksgiving, Thu 11/24: 8 and 9 am classes only
Black Friday, Fri 11/25: 8 and 9 am classes only
Saturday, 11/26: 8 and 9 am classes only
With Thanksgiving approaching, here is a tempered article from Breaking Muscle. In posting this article, I am not saying I whole-heartedly agree with it, but rather something to think about and help avoid that feeling of failure some people experience:
REGULAR EXERCISE PROTECTS AGAINST OCCASIONAL OVER-EATING
Here come the Holidays, and many of us are looking forward to big family dinners, holiday parties, and special meals. It’s not just one day of indulging, it’s really a season. Lots of folks will enjoy at least two big dinners around Thanksgiving alone.
And coaches and trainers will tell you: You can’t out-train a bad diet. They’ll warn you that eating poorly will reduce your performance in the gym and set you on a downward spiral.
But that may not be the whole story. Not, at least, when it comes to occasional bouts of over-eating for people who exercise regularly. Recent research1 indicates that even a week of eating more than usual might not do irreparable damage to your health and fitness—but the secret is exercise.
