Post Press Loads and Metcon Time to Comments
For the strength segment,  we are starting a new 4 week cycle of the Wendler 5-3-1 Program (more details here).  “Working 1RM” is defined as 90% of your current 1RM.  If you are not sure of your current 1RM talk to your Coaches and they’ll help you determine it.  If you completed the previous 4 week cycle your working 1RM for this cycle should be set 5lbs heavier for the Press and Bench and 10lbs heavier for the Squat and Deadlift.  Note:  1st work set is 5 reps, 2nd is 3 reps, and final work set is for “max reps”.  However, you should not be going to absolute failure on this last set.

For the Metcon, the Deadlift load is fairly light on purpose (remember, we’re in a deload week on Wendler, AND your core should be smoked from the gymnastics segment).  You can certainly scale up, but keep it to a load you can do unbroken throughout the ten minutes.

ENDURANCE WOD tonight at 6pm!  Bring a stopwatch or interval timer!

      Courtney -- I suggest you come do today's WOD. If you're worried it's not hard enough for you go ahead and scale it up. I didn't see anyone have an easy time with it so far today. Not every WOD is meant, nor should it, take 25 minutes to complete or leave you in a pile of sweat and puke when it's over. You get out of it, what you put in.

    Is that an overhead press joke, or am I missing something?

    Did this WOD smoke anyone else's upper body? It didn't feel brutal at the time but I'm shaking when I reach out to pick things up.

    @Jayme: Yes. I'm wondering how (if) I'll fare dancing tonight.
