I love mixing it up in the gym. In this workout, I combine some classic barbell powerlifting with gymnastics in a strength-focused set. This type of workout takes advantage of both open and closed chain contractions for loading variety. This way we can get more volume but stress the body and brain differently.
I like to use around 50-60% 1RM for the weights to make it more of a hypertrophy focus. On the bench press and dead lift add a 2 sec slow tempo on the eccentric portion of the lifts.
Enjoy and these movements and they pack a total body punch. DM me if you want ideas on how to keep your workouts fresh!
