I would like to start and say I am not a beginner, but probably intermediate.
My wife and I are both CFL1 and both coach (me non profit for LEOs, and her a few private clients) and have been doing CF for a couple of years (in gyms with coaches and at home)
We are getting ready to start the 3rd week of CFSB and both have been seeing gains in our Squat, Deadlift, and front squat using 3 rounds of 5 reps.
We have been scaling the WODS from the main site or using past ones to meet the time suggestions following the heavy lifts and have been doing really well there.
Where are problem seems to be is our Strict Press.
We started the cycle with about 80 of our 5 rep max and have been working our way up.
Today we both hit our old 3 rep max on a 5 rep lift, then tried to add 5lbs and we both failed at rep 4 of the third set.
So, should we try again in week 3 for the 3 rounds of 5 rep max with the same weight we used this week, or change just the strict press to 5 rounds of 3 and start see-sawing the weight up from there?
We are also both reading Starting Strength and trying to use some of the lifting techniques in there as well and really be critical of our lifts.
Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.
