LIFT

  1. Military Press and Chinups: warm up from empty bar to your working weight.  Between sets, 10 chin-ups any way you can.
  2. Press: put on a belt- one all-out set at your working weight.  Pause 30 seconds, one more all out set.  Pause another 30 seconds, one last all out set.  Do the same with pull-ups- one all out set, pause, repeat, pause, repeat.
  3. GRIND:
    20-15-10
    Accelerating Bench*
    Pendlay or chest supported row
    Ankles-to-bar

*Accelerating Bench: bench press using chains, bands or a slingshot, all of which cause the bench to be lighter at the bottom, heavier at the top.  Do not overload the actual weight- this is very high rep.
