DECEMBER 1st 2019

December starts us off with our 2nd week of the current cycle.

-Anyone following the 4 day routine should not do “humpday pumpday”. They should do the active rest. Whether they do the Sabado Gigante (which is the same programming as humpday pumpday) is case by case depending how they feel from the week’s worth of work. Don’t over do it. The Sabado Gigante often overlaps things done during the week. When in doubt, push or drag sleds and do some curls.

-Afterburners: These are optional conditioning pieces of the programming. Whether a person completes this is dependent on their goals and calorie intake. If actual sustained strength and mass is the goal, the afterburners should not be done. At least not without increased calorie count to accommodate the extra effort. That being said, some sustained sweat should happen at least once a week. That is the active rest on Wednesday.

Additionally, some of the movements in the Afterburners are not found in the GainCity accessory work. If a person wants to get those movements in for accessory but doesnt want to overdo the sweats, just take the movements and rep counts out of the afterburner and do them like regular sets/reps.

Brief: Good set of gains today. UBB index is high, bring your mirrors. Speed bench goes up 5% for white tier, and the Swod progresses from last week to a work/rest interval.


Warmup:

2 minutes Assault bike

-then

Spidermans forward/backward

Crab walk forward/backward

Scorpions stretch backnforth each side

:30 deadhang pullups grip

:30 deadhang chinup grip


Major Lift: Red: Bench Press

-then 2xmax reps @80% of the heaviest set of the day

Wht/Blu: Speed Banded Bench Press

5x3 @55%

5x3 @60%

3x3 @65%


GainCity:

3x

12 (each) Kneeling landmine press https://youtu.be/_ArzG9qz-yM

12 (each) Single arm DB row

15 DB Seated incline curls https://youtu.be/L0UeTFhGYfw (enjoy the sweet dance music)

Max reps dips


Afterburner:

10 Rounds,

:30 work, :15 rest

5 Pullups (kip ok)

Max reps Pushups

*This will get aggressive quickly for most people. Make sure to scale the pullups properly. Bands are ok as long they are not kipping in them. Scaling to jumping pullups may be the best option for many people. Ring rows as a last resort are fine.

*Knee pushups are never allowed. Trunk development is a large part of a pushup. Scaling to knees, takes that stimulus away. Instead of knees, elevate people as high as necessary on benches or boxes so they can get proper form and knock out some reps. Looking for minimum 5-7 Pushups per round. Strong folk should be getting upwards of 20 reps at least in the first few rounds.

Brief: Barbell cycling gets more aggressive today, and finish with a leg pump that’ll leave you with a handicap placard.


Warmup:

5 min Running clock:

4 Squats

2 Lunges (total)

50m Run


Major Lift: Red: Squat

-then 2xmax reps @80% of the heaviest set of the day

Wht/Blu: Front Squat

Max 1

1xAMRAP@80%

**Compare to max 3 November 5th**


GainCity:

4x

15 (each) DB single leg deadlift

15 DB Bent Over Rows

10 Pistols (each)


Afterburner:

10 Minute Running Clock:

Every :30 for 10 rounds, same weight as last week:

4 Deadlift

4 Hang Power Clean

2 Front Rack Lunges

-then 1minute rest

At 6minutes on the clock:

1 minute max reps hang power cleans

-then 2minutes rest

At 9minutes on the clock:

1 minute max reps front racked lunges

*Fast barbell cycling is important here, but don’t let people fall apart in their movement, especially on the deadlift. Each round needs to be around :15 seconds of work. If their form breaks down, have them skip a round and get back to it.

*If you have someone who didn’t do this last week, use 135/95 as a weight load guide.

Active Rest Day

Abstravaganza:

For quality of movement, spend 1 minute at each station:

Twisting Punches w/ lightweight db’s

Plank Reach to Spider Knee

Weighted Hollow Rocks w/ lightweight db’s

Skier Hops

Single leg vup → Regular vup w/ lightweight db’s

*rest as needed between each station and repeat 3 times.

*Courtesy of instagram @jtm_fit

-OR-

HUMPDAY PUMPDAY!!

Find heavy 3 rep Floor Press

-then

5 Rounds:

20 Burpee DB Step ups

20 DB floor press

*Each rep of DB Burpee stepups consists of one burpee on DB’s, then one step up on each leg.

* Use a box height that is low enough so people do not have an egregious pelvic tilt. For many, this will mean a height lower than 20” and will need to stack plates for their proper height. This will keep their pelvis inline and happy and allow for heavier weights.

*Different sized weights for each stage is allowed.

*The floor press should be unbroken for the first 2 rounds at least.
