Max Effort Upper Week 26 Day 2

Warm up

DB Reverse flys 

Band push 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 - Retest Close grip Bench   

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

Now that you know your max 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. 

Legs straight out in front of you to stop any leg drive,


Bench isometrics 4 inches off chest 4x20secs

ATP cable rows 3x10

Kettlebell shrugs 4x20

Sit ups with pause 3x1min
