Strength efforts are kicking in these days. People are hitting their max weights in their linear progression and you can see the proof in some of these pictures.
If you try the same weight on 3 different occasions (not 3 attempts in the same workout) to do 3 sets of 5 reps and continue to miss just 1 rep of the 15 total, it’s time to reset. Drop your weight to 65-75% of your failed attempt and build back up. You will see you will soar past your failed weight. The reset is a good break for your body and mind.
You cannot continue successfully with linear progression forever. It’s a phase of training. We are retesting CFT in February. This is a 4 month phase of this type of strength programming before we shift into the next gear.
