Box Programming for May 8-13, 2017
Coach Mark Rippetoe on resting in between squat reps: “It varies with the length of the set. 5s or fewer get a breath to reset. Longer sets might take 2 breaths. During the last few reps of a true 20RM squat, just do what Jesus tells you. Trust me, if you do an honest 20 rep program, at some point Jesus will talk to you.”
Fittest Of The Box 2017 is Sunday, May 21. Box will be closed Monday, May 22. EVENTS 1 & 2 START NEXT WEEK, WAIT FOR IT

Use what you have learned from the 5-5-5-5 series to bust out a big number. Trust, brace, and get it done. This should be significantly heavier than your first attempt on Week 1 of the FOTB Cycle.
