Wednesdays are for getting stronger. Strength is one of the greatest priorities of our program, as frailty is one if the greatest causes of loss of independence as we get older.

Today, after a solid warm-up, we’ll barbell back squat and deadlift – both 3 rds x 5 reps. Take your time. There’s an alternate accessory movement that has a purpose but also is an opportunity to rest between sets. For pressing today we’ll use double dumbbells for a push press.

Getting your heart rate up for a hot second with be easy with a 6 minute EMOM of burpees (yay burpees!).

Finally, we’ll cool down continuing to get acclimated to the new rig and the bars.

Hump day: complete.
