In our final week of this lifting cycle, each day’s volume is a little lower to prioritize lifting as heavy as possible on the Main Lifts.

For the Main Lift, build toa. 3-rep-max bench press. Be sure to use a spotter and take a full 3:00 of rest between your heaviest sets.

Emphasize control on the descent and speed on the way up during warm-up sets.

For Accessory – I, build to a 7 rep-max hang power clean. The set must be unbroken, but you can rest in the front rack or the hang between reps.

Sets 1-3 should be similar in load to the first 3 weeks used in this cycle.
