Today we train with a 5 round volume set of 5 reps. In all, “just” 25 total reps over the course of 5 working sets (that is: not including the work done in warm-up sets). Once you have worked up and are ready… you have 5 sets at 5 reps each. Use a heavy enough weight so that by the 3rd or 4th rep of each set you have to use everything you’ve got to stand up, and then FINISH THE SET! A rest of about 4-5 minutes is absolutely necessary to get ready for the next set. As you approach the bar to start each set- you need to have the mindset that you CAN do this! Give it everything you’ve got. An experienced athlete will be able to manage a weight of about 85% of 1 rep max. You can and should bump up the weight a percentage point or two if your first set does not elicit a sufficient amount of grief, fear, or guilt (if you don’t have enough weight on the bar and you know it!)
