We’re recalculating your EORM:
This phase we’re going to increase the weights a bit because you’re getting stronger.
Now we’re going to add 10 more pounds to your EORM from the last phase.
Now you can use your calculator to work your percentages:
Set 1 – 65% of new EORM
Set 2 – 70%
Set 3 – 75%
Set 4 – 80%
On the AMRAP use 80% of whatever weight you lifted on the 4th set of 4
On the Front Rack Walking Lunges – use 50% of your AMRAP weight. So for example: if you used 100 pounds for your AMRAP then hold your Front Rack Walking Lunges should be done with 50 pounds – so hold a 25 pound dumbbell in each hand.
We’re getting deeper into the strength work and your form will become even more critical. Please remember that the weight is a tool – not a goal – so don’t let your ego write checks your body can’t (and shouldn’t even if it can) cash. Stay focused on why you’re here.
Do the rest of the exercises as normal – 10 reps using our normal rule of thumb: if you finish the set and could have done a couple more reps – up the weight.
Make sure to take the full 2:00 rest in between sets. The rest period is critical for the strength work.
