(Build to a moderately heavy set of 5 and hold for the final 2-3 sets)
A quick finisher 🙂
We’ll do a nice long specific warm-up focusing mainly on hip mobility and glute activation before getting on with our heavy day. Many of us haven’t had a squat rack or enough load to go heavy for the last few weeks so today we ease our way back into the swing of our regular “heavy days”. After a few warm-up sets building in load, you’ll begin the 5 sets of 5 reps. Continue building on your first working set or 2 as you get to a moderately heavy load (think about 80% 1RM), and then hold that load for your final 2-3 sets. Missing is NOT an option today! Rest a minimum 2 minutes between sets from the beginning, and 3 minutes between your last 2-3 sets. After set #5, you’ll tackle a quick finisher. Sing up and show up to class to find out what that is!
