Welcome to January and 2017. I hope everyone enjoyed their holidays. If you are like me, you are definitely ready to get working on those New Year goals! We’ve got some great programming coming up this month to help you on your way.
Focus: Retest Baseline Strength Numbers/Olympic lifting Positional Work
Coming off December’s programming and this first week of January, you should be starting to get used to what it feels like to move fast. This is one of our goals…speed…smooth speed!
This new block will also re-test some strength movements as well as benchmark conditioning pieces. You will also see box squats repeated in the same fashion as we did back in October and November.
Things to Remember:
Strength Testing: Make sure you have your old numbers so we can compare and see our improvements! We will be retesting our Back Squat, Push Press, Sumo Deadlift and Floor Presses.
Conditioning Testing: Filthy Fifty and GI Jane
Skill Training: We will spend at least 1 day per week working on skill development. You will see Handstand Work, Ring Work, Double Under Work to name a few! If we don’t practice these, we will never improve them J
All task-domain workouts have time caps. The reasoning is not only for time-management but to ensure you are getting the desired response for each conditioning piece. Time caps will help ensure that you scale your workouts correctly.
Extra Credit work can be done after class and takes roughly 5:00 to complete
