The Week Ahead

We're on the 2's series of the 5/3/2's. Hopefully you've established a good baseline in the previous two weeks and will be able to choose a suitably challenging weight. As with the previous two weeks, the final set is an AMRAP to help you determine how drastically you should up your weights on the next cycle (see the post two Mondays previous for guidelines regarding this). Again, if you've chosen appropriate weights for the previous two weeks, your final set should be within a few reps of the intended two. If you end up repping out 10, 12 or even more reps, go up. Big time. The rest of the week should be moderate, mostly bodyweight WODs or light weights. Take advantage of this and get some of that "active rest."
