Around The Square – 3 x 4
Front Squat – 5 x 57.5kg, 5 x 65kg, 10 x 75kg
Straight Legged Deadlifts – 5 x 10 x 50kg
Straight Legged Deadlifts – 5 x 47.5kg, 5 x 55kg, 10 x 62.5kg
Front Squat – 5 x 10 x 62.5kg
Single Leg Calf Raises – 3 x 16 x BW
I opted for a top set of 10, if I aim for a big number I end up doing incomplete reps. I love boring but big, I’m keeping 2 minutes rest and the weight I’m using aligns with the first set of week 2 for that lift.

Running – 2 x 1 mile (5 mins rest), 7:49, 7:21
I usually do repeat 400’s but I’m drawing on a rowing program I once did that mixed in faster interval work with slower steady stuff. I was at the track and When I started running I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do, but after a lap I decided on a mile rep. I have no idea what I’m capable of so I was aiming for an 8 minute mile and sped up at the end when I realised it was well within my capability. The next rep I didn’t have a target in mind I just wanted to push a little harder, it was still relatively easy and a hard rep would perhaps be a 6:30 mile.
