June 23rd 2019 New cycle and First week of Summer, make sure those biceps are ready!

GCSC JUNE 2019

📷

**And here's a pic of me deadlifting back in 2009, with just wee little mullet**

-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.


Monday, June 24th, DE UPPER:

Jet Fuel:

Partners:

1 partner always performs 5 burpees

*Grip closer than usual. Don’t overthink it. The only thing we don’t want is our hands so close together that they interfere with touching our chest. Hands should remain outside shoulders*

GainCity:

-Kneeling Landmine Press https://youtu.be/_ArzG9qz-yM

4x8 (each)

10x10 seconds

(If necessary, use a box or a low bar and jump to get your chin over the bar. These are not pullups, the work is in holding, not pulling up. Make it as easy as needed to get chin over. If necessary, leave one foot on the floor to support yourself as little as possible.)

10x10 seconds

-Band Bent Over Rows https://youtu.be/PiLuQHq2dS4

4x20

-BB Curls and DB Skull Crushers

4x12

Afterburner:

75 Burpee Pullups

If bar cannot be setup to efficiently move directly from a burpee into a jumping pullup, then sub ring rows and break the reps up into sets of 5. I.e. 5 burpees, 5 ring rows, repeat.
