Day5: Rest
Day6: Lower Body

Heavy Pull: Deadlift (315#x3/ 335#x3/ 355#x4)
Unilateral Movement: Step-Ups (155#x10x3)
Accessory Superset: Sumo Deadlift (180#x10x3)/ Swiss Ball Leg Curl (BWx10x3)
Core Circuit: GH Sit-Ups (25#x15x2)/ GH Back Extension (25#x15x2)

*Much more organized than the last lower body day involving the deadlift, but just didn't have the energy that I thought I would have after the unilateral movement partly due to following the Warrior Diet in my opinion

Wk3: Day 1 - Speed & Upper Body

Speed Work: 10x10m starts (from various positions)

Upper Body:
Heavy Push: Floor Press (225#x3x5)
Heavy Row: BB Row (135#x8, 155#x8, 165#x6x2)/ Face Pulls (Medium Band x 15x3)
Accessory Movement: Curl to Press (25#x12x2, x8x2)
Core Circuit: Sit-Ups x15/ Side Crunches x15/ Rev. Crunches x15/ Back Ext. x15; Side Bends - 2x5x96# (Hvy).

*No access to a bench which is why I substituted floor presses for bench press. Still went heavy maximal CNS activation.
* No access to a track so I made do with practicing starts from various positions (3x pushup position [down], 3x pushup position [up], 4x regular start).
