Welcome to Max Out Week!! This week, we will test our Back Squat, Clean, Bench Press, OHS, pullup, pushup, ring dip, T2B, Deadlift, Front Squat, Snatch, and Clean and Jerk! Even if you don’t typically keep track of your lifts, this would be a good time to jot some numbers down. Many folks use SugarWOD, but a good ol’ notebook works just as well.
Hopefully, your training, sleep, and nutrition are all on point (on fleek? off the chain?), and you get a bunch of PRs. One question you may have is, “How do I work up to a 1RM?”
That’s an excellent question, with a tricky answer. Everyone is a little different, and there is no exact science behind how to work up to a max load. If you are an experienced athlete, you should know whether you do better with more or fewer warm up sets. If you are newer, I would error on the side of more warm up sets.
Go forth and hit some PRs!!!
