Threshold Training Cycle – Microcycle 3 – Monday
Squat 1 x 3 plus 10lbs from last week
Squat 1 x 8 at 75% 10lbs from last week
Squat 1 x 5 at 80% 10lbs from last week
Complete 3 rds of:
Squat, 10 reps at 60% 1 RM
Plank with 45lb plate on back for total of 1 minute
The first part is pretty straight forward. Use last weeks (same workout) or a rep and weight calculator to get your 1 RM and go from there. If last week was easy, go up 10lbs.
When you get to the circuit, complete it without stop. Stay controlled, tight, and consistent all the way through. Do it right, or don’t do it at all, unless you want to have major back issues. Your choice.
