KSCF Programming this Spring
Over the next couple of weeks, we will be testing our 1 RM in various lifts. If you are unable to make the class to test your max, take time to test it on your own. We will be using these 1 RM numbers to lift a percentage of these weights in order to improve our overall strength.
This Spring we'll be implementing Weightlifting programming put together by Coach Mariette. We'll also be preparing for Murph coming in May and always trying to be as strong as possible because activities of daily living become easier the stronger we are. There are tips below about how to run the 1 RM tests on your own. You can also chat in our private FB group or in the classes about if people want to come in and lift with you if you are unable to make the class testing. #TogetherEveryoneAchievesMore
After a full warm-up of the specific body part, start to load the bar for the particular movement
As you build in weight, think warm-up sets of 5-5-3-3 before loading into sets of 1. Each warm-up set should build in weight working to a near max weight where you will transition to 1 rep sets.
As the weights get close to your max or what FEELS like your max, give yourself 3 attempts from there to find your max. Attempting many more than 3 sets becomes stressful to the body and can become counterproductive. Remember, we are finding these current 1 Rep Max weights to apply to a percentage in the future in order to improve our overall strength
