Workout Wednesday – September 19th

By September 18, 2018Epic Extras

This week, we will highlight yet another piece of equipment in our fitness arsenal.  The Precor power rack allows for both beginners and seasoned weight lifters to use multiple forms of compound lifts in order to take training to the next level.  Whether your goal is to do some pull-ups, learn how to properly do a power clean or breakthrough your deadlift plateaus, you will have a safe space to practice and work on form.  The power rack also allows for functional add-ons like bands for suspended training.  Safety is ensured with features like step-up platforms with non-slip material, adjustable bar catches and an Olympic lifting platform.  Our fitness professionals will be around to help guide members and guests if you’ve never used equipment like this before.  Try this power rack inspired workout below:

Reminder: This is a challenging, highly skilled workout.  Consult with an Epic fitness professional before trying exercises, especially if you are a beginner and need help with form. Remember to warm-up properly and cool down after.

I. Clean Pull + Power Clean + Front Squat + Split Jerk: (60-70% 1RM) 1+1+1+1 x 3
