Ali ready to go overhead!
Today is the official last day of this round of programming. Usually we end on a Friday, but because we switched things up to hit some of those old games workouts, it pushed things a couple of days. The rest of the week (Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday as a rest day) will be used as a short de-load period. The workouts will be designed so that your output will be around 70%. This is important because the reality is that it’s impossible to sustain maximum intensity for an indefinite period of time. You might think that you do give max all the time, but it’s just not true. If you don’t consciously back off every once in a while, your body will make you do it. The thing that’s tough about de-load periods is that those who have been at this for a while and have been consistent with getting into the gym really need it. Those who are sporadic about hitting WODs don’t need it as much. That being said, you have the option to hit the WOD as hard as you choose to. Our recommendation will be to back off a little bit and have fun with it. Regardless, there won’t be any scaling up in load or reps this week. In place of skill or strength the rest of the week, you’ll see some focused mobility. Enjoy the break!
On Monday we’ll start a 2 week cycle of fun. There won’t be any strength or skills for those 2 weeks, with the exception of some skill instruction related to that day’s WOD. Anyone out there have some hero WODs they’d like to check off their list?
Following that 2 week fun cycle, we’ll begin a 12 week period with some specific goals for the programming. We think you’ll be pretty happy with what we have in store. More info on that will follow!!
