Max Effort Upper Week 13 Day 2


Warm up

Band push downs

Lat pull downs

Do a few reps with the bar to get familiar with it, do a few warm up sets until you are ready to engage in the max effort movement.


The Lift - Pin press 6inches off chest with Chains  

As with the Lower body Max Effort, after you have warmed up take no more than 7 working sets to hit a new 1rm.

If you know your max then you should only do 3 lifts above 90% and the third one should be a new PR. If you don’t then go till you hit something that’s as heavy as you can safely lift but don’t get greedy and fail. If you are unsure leave it where it stands and get a new record next time.  

Tighten upper back and push into the bench. Always start the concentric phase by firing the triceps first
