5.2 Strength


This is quite similar to last week. I wanted to repeat the rep scheme so you can adjust to the 8 reps. Man, 8 reps are hard. Most people start to lose it and struggle around 5 or 6 reps. Our test is not in the gym, it’s outside. This is why we continue to vary the rep schemes. If we were power lifters then we would spend a large portion of our lifting with 1 and 2 reps. We are trying to induce a strength response from different types of stresses.
