TZ Off Season 6.3.14

Weightlifting
No Hands/No Feet Clean from mid-thigh blocks 60%x2x2, 65%x2x2, 70%x2x2

Strength
Bench Press, 2 count pause 5 @ 7, 5 @ 8, 5 @ 9, plus two down sets (load drop)

Notes: I hope to hell this is obvious, but just in case it’s not – the 2 count pause is at the bottom, not the top or somewhere in between.

12 toes-to-bar

Aerobic Development

Strength

1) Back Squat to max in 3 attempts

2) Bench Press to max in 3 attempts

3) Deadlift to max in 3 attempts

Notes: Strongly recommended that you take a good 30 minutes between lifts, eat a snack (sugar is your friend,) watch some Regionals, etc. Treat this as if you were actually going for it in a meet, i.e. make sure your opening lift is a sure thing, second is a very nearly sure thing. Something like 1 @ 7-8, 1 @ 9, 1 @ 10.
