*There needs to be spotters on your three heavy squat attempts.
**Those of you really new, you'll not be going really heavy on these lifts. We'll just be trying to get close to knowing a 1 rep max.
These one rep max's we're getting on this will be used to calculate the percentages you use on the next strength cycle.
Back Squat 1 – 1 – 1
Shoulder Press 1 – 1 – 1
Dead Lift 1 – 1 – 1
The first attempt would be a weight you know you can do for a heavy set of three. The second attempt would be a weight you know without any doubt that you could do for a single...having just done the first attempt. And the third attempt is the weight you want to do, based on your performance on the previous two attempts.
In the You Tube video...take note of how to dump a missed back squat attempt on his last attempt.
