Increase weight ea set

Video courtesy of Juggernaut Training Systems. Third run of Close-Grip Bench Press this cycle.  This cycle we will not only make the chest stronger, but the shoulder and triceps become even stronger as well.  Just like with normal bench press, keep your shoulder blades locked to the bench, feet glued to the ground, and allow the elbows to drop straight down.  With the change in grip, try to keep the elbows close to the body and aim to touch the bar on the chest just slightly lower than where it hits on a regular bench press. Sets are back to 5, but reps drop to 3 per set, so up the weight compared to what you used for the 3X5 week.

200M Mixed Position* KB Farmers Walk (53’s/35’s)

Video courtesy of Marcus Filly.For the mixed grip farmer walk, one KB goes up into the front rack position, and the other one stays in the farmer carry position.  Switch positions at the 100M mark.  Focus on keeping those hips even, not leaning to one side or the other.  Shake out the arms before jumping up on the pull up rig.
