NOTES

Welcome to week 3 of the Mechanics lifting cycle in which we are focused on building the base for our strength development.

Today we are working off of our 20 rep max that we found in week 1. Take the load of your 20-rep max and multiply it by the percentages in today’s lifting session. This will determine your loads for each set.

Each set is meant to be unbroken. Feel free to rest at the top of the back squat with the bar on your back, but you should not have to re-rack the bar.

Rest about 3:00 between sets.

Look for next week’s percentages to go down and the reps to increase.

In Accessory – I, use a barbell to load the single-leg split squats. Start with an empty barbell and increase to no heavier than 95/135 lb. Increase load across as many sets as possible.

Rest as needed between sets.
