BACK ON THE BOXOctober 3, 2011
After a few running workouts, and some nasty hamstring work, Thursday was time to move the emphasis to the upper body. While its now cool to disparage the bench press, it is a great way to increase strength. Functionality critics always ask “when are you going to be on your back pushing something away?” Once you get stiff-armed in the chest from a guy with a 450 lb press, you don’t really ask those kinds of hypothetical questions- the value of it is apparent.
5×5 Bench Press/ Pullups (add weight if needed)
2 rounds of 1 minute max reps with the bar
