What up all. I’m a senior in high school and I have been using Easy Strength-style workouts. What I really like about them is that I have the energy left to practice wrestling (my first year lol) and baseball (my main sport). For example, I did 5x2 each on push jerks and snatches last workout. On Friday I did 3x3 on bench press (don’t want to start a baseball - benching debate) and box squats. My goals are a 185x1 bench and a 315 box squat. For the Olympic lifts, they are a 175x1 push jerk, a 155x1 power clean, and a 135 power snatch. And so it begins.
(PS, what good HS wrestling forums are out there?)
Today’s lift: 3x3 at 95 lbs on bench, 5 reps at 135, 3 reps at 185, 2 reps at 225 on box squat, 3x3 at 135 on deadlift, 5x2 at 115 on push jerk and 2x5 strict pull ups.
What up all. 2x5 at 115 on bench, 2x5 at 135 on deadlift, 2x6 strict pullups, 3x3 hang power cleans at 95 lbs, 5x2 with 65 lbs on snatches. Finished with 1x15 3ext kettlebell swings (a la Pavel) at 30lbs and pickup basketball
Light lift today. 2x5 at 135 on box squats, 2x5 at 95 lbs, 2x5 at 155 lbs on deadlift. Gatorade performance chews didn’t affect much.
