Max Effort Upper Week 20 Day 2

Warm up

DB ext 

Band pull aparts

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 - Incline wide grip press   

Wide grip will be outside your normal grip. usually with little finger on the power ring 

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.  

Try and bend the bar in your hands before you start the movement. This will help keep the lats activated
