Post Bench Load and Workout Rounds to Comments
For the strength segment, we introduce the concept of Dynamic Effort from the Westside Conjugate System.  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.  Make sure you watch the video below.

For the conditioning workout, you can break up each movement into as many sets as you wish and switch back and forth from movement to movement if you choose.  Perform your dips on rings, bars, or parallettes.
