NOTES ABOUT TODAY’S TRAINING

Today is a “strength only” day where is focused on dialing technique with the power clean and building to a heavy single, getting in strength work with the 1 1/4 front squat, and then assistance exercises with the DB RDL and DB Walking lunges. Don’t make the mistake of thinking this will be an “easy day” – it won’t! The DB RDLs should be heavy and can also be done with KBs if needed. The lunges should be a challenging weight but done in sets of 10-20 at a time.
