Come Down Sets – Leg Press Til You Puke

130315-Z-SM234-001Come Down Sets

This is a fun way to do a bench or maybe a deadlift workout. I would NOT recommend it for a squat workout due to the technique failure.

Work up to 92.5% – 95% of your max.

As soon as you hit your last rep – the clock starts. You have 35 seconds to drop 20 pounds and do 5 reps. If you don’t do 5, the clock starts again as you drop another 20 pounds and try again. Keep dropping 20 pounds and trying every 35 seconds until you successfully do 5 reps. As soon as you do 5 reps – hit the floor and do push ups.  Whoever does the most push ups wins.

Work up to 92.5% – 95% of your max.
Rest 1:00 and drop 10% of the load on the leg press and go to failure.
Rest 1:00 and drop 10% again and go to failure.
Rest 1:00 and drop 10% again and go to failure.
Rest 1:00 and drop 10% again and go to failure.
Rest 1:00 and drop 10% again and go to failure.

Rest 1:00 and do a wall sit at 90 degrees squeezing a mediball between your legs and holding a 10 or 25 pound plate like a steering wheel. Your partner that was unloading the weight will push the plate down, up, right and left for a 2 second count each way. The person the goes the longest on the wall wins.
