Generally, there are two options you can take when you see “5-5-5-5-5” as a strength workout. Some folks enjoy staying at one weight that is light to moderate for all of their sets. This is great in a sense that it essentially develops a solid foundation of strength. Once that foundation is established, most individuals will choose to increase the weight each set. In doing so, these folks generally reach weights that are moderate to heavy. Feel free to base your decision off of how you feel when you come to the gym!

This workout is a Thank You to one of our members, Paige Chivers. As some of you may know, I often ask members to “test” some workout ideas for me. Being the amazing athlete that Paige is, she volunteered and somehow convinced me to create this workout if she helped me. Enjoy!

As in the past, for the next four weeks you’ll have a choice to pursue a Strength or Conditioning Focus when it comes to weightlifting. The Strength Focus is essentially that; you’ll focus on the mechanics of the lift and spend most of your mental efforts trying to practice and move as well as possible! The Conditioning Focus is for people who would like to practice their weightlifting with the addition of an elevated heart rate that is similar to your typical CrossFit workout. This option is great in a sense that you’ll gain confidence lifting certain weights under fatigue.
