    For part A, what % is that of 1 RM?

  • Vabs says:

    Ready to come in and kick ass today. Have some hostility to get out.

  • Vabs says:

    Austin – I think it is 93/94 percent.

  • Lis says:

    Three rounds, increasing weight each round. As heavy as possible. You don’t put the bar down between reps… so in other words, take the bar out of rack, complete 1 press, 2 push press, 3 push jerk, return bar to rack.

    Part 2 you’ll start w 90% of 1RM press, but be prepared to (load your bar so you can quickly) drop weight in Rd 3-4 if needed.
