Week 1 of our Strength Cycle
Back Squat and Strict Press
Please use 90% of your 1RM 65%x5 75%x5 85%x5+

When you see 5+, 3+, or 1+, that means you do the max reps you can manage with that weight, with the goal of setting a rep record in each workout.

Let’s walk through the Week 1 workout for Back Squat. Using the example above, if your 1RM is 315, you calculate all your percentages from 90% of that max, or 285 pounds.

So you’re using 185 (65% of 285) x 5, 215 x 5, and 240 or 245 x 5+
