Post Bench Press Loads and Workout Rounds To Comments
For the strength segment, the goal is to move the weight as quickly as possible for your three reps across all 9 sets, particularly on the way up.  Rep speed should be roughly 1 second down and 1 second up.  If you cannot perform all of your reps at this speed then you need to use a lighter load…regardless of whether you’re at 50% or not. Perform three sets “wide” grip – pinkies on the outside lineThree sets “medium” grip – thumbs distance from the middle knurlingThree sets “narrow” grip – index finger just off the smooth part of the middle of the bar.

For the conditioning workout, perform American Swings.  Sub knees to elbows for toes to bar.  Do not overchalk the pullup bar and make sure you hold on tight.  For those of you using a box to mount the bar, DO NOT put it directly behind you in case you fall off.

    Worked the bench press at 135 for all sets. Speed felt pretty good. METCON -- subbed KTE for TTB, used Rx weights -- 7 rounds even. Fun stuff!
