New Strength Cycle

This is our first week of the Wendler 531 program. I won’t go through a lengthy description on this site; there are plenty of blogs that have done that work (here is one such blog).
If you are interested enough you can checkout Wendler’s book: Wendler 531.
For the next three weeks there will be less variety in our strength work. Our strength schedule is as follows:
Monday: Back Squat
Tuesday: Bench press
Wednesday: Olympic/gymnastic technique or additional strength work
Friday: Deadlift
Saturday: Press
Each week you should make sure you perform the squat, press, deadlift and bench press. If you are a 3 day/week member, you may want to make up 1-2 of those movements after the WOD in place of the supplemental work.
