For this WOD you are probably better off going with the Bergener Warm-up.The important thing here is to "grease the groove." I usually take a set amount of time, 2-3 minutes, betweem sets. I will start with 10 reps at a light weight, add some weight and do 10 more, then do a set of 7 with a bit more. Once I am warmed up, I'll do the three sets of 5. These are "sets across," meaning you do not increase the weight.

For example, on shoulder presses, my log book would look like this:

10 x 65
10 x 75
7 x 95
5 x 125
5 x 125
5 x 125 (fail on 5)

Make sure you focus on proper execution of the movement!

Was able to get through back squats and shoulder presses this morning. Will hit pull-ups later (hopefully).
