5×5 Getting Strong Legs WOD #33

Back at it again! For these lifts, warm-up with 50% of your five-rep max. I.E., if you squat 225 lbs, then warm up with roughly 115 or 35’s on each side of the barbell. 5×5 means you do five sets of five reps with the same weight. Why does this method work? Training to failure gets you pumped and sore; Soreness prevents you to train the muscles again the same week. 5×5’s is based on common sense, these compound lifts involves more muscle activation – squats use more muscles – you can lift heavier and thus build more muscle. These workouts are short but the intensity is high, you’ll look forward to going to the gym because those strength gains are going to come FAST. Enjoy the workout!

Hey Everyone! I'm really excited to announce that I will be officially starting cooperbrunnerfitness! To give a quick overview, I will basically be discussing concepts or frameworks I've learned through research that I believe are critical to learn to become a disciplined, successful individual in all aspects of life. Your probably wondering.. Why are you all of the sudden deciding to become a blogger? Well... For years I have been studying/reading about influential people (Warren, Gary V, Tony Robbins, Zuck, Jobs..) that began with nothing and incrementally worked their way into becoming successful entrepreneurs. My hope is that while writing these blogs, I can ultimately inspire you to change your life and conquer those challenges you face everyday that block you from your goals. By no means am I saying that everything I talk about is the magic secret to success, but by reading the content I write about, hopefully you can take away some small tips/advice that can help inspire you to create ways on improving your life and the others around you. MAKE TODAY COUNT.
