This week starts another programing cycle. Today's strength is going to give you an important number that will be used over the next 8 weeks for back squats. Do what you can to get in the door today. You'll have plenty of time to work up in weight. It's not a struggle for most of you to find that aggressiveness when working up to a 1RM. It will be important for you to approach these 5 rep days with the same intensity. The load won't be the same as when you work heavy singles, but the time under the bar won't be the same either – it will be longer! Just because the weight is lighter doesn't mean it's easy. Come in prepared to work and get after it!
