Taper Week

Every one has been training so hard and hitting some challenging workouts. Now it’s time to ease it up a bit for a taper week. Without rest, your body never has time to adapt and grow. During rest is when the most adaptation happens, so every now and then we have to let the body catch up to the intensity of the workouts. 

Now you will still be doing work every day but the volume and intensity will be significantly less. This doesn’t mean to completely blow off the week, there will still be some benefit to the work we will be doing. 

4 Sets
8 One Legged Box Step ups with box at your side
8 Close Grip Ovrhead Squats (stay at a light weight!)
8 Double Kb Russian Swings

Tabata Something Else
6 Tabata Rounds of each

Desert Games Prep
2 Rounds
20 Cal AirBike
15 Axel Bar Deadlifts w/Comp. weight

Last Saturday Practice 

Our last Saturday practice will be at our usual time: 1130. Today there will be a couple heats and the space is intentionally set up to put you closer than you’d prefer to the other teams. The goal here is to focus on staying in your marked sections and getting a proper warmup before your Heat goes. One more time!

Drop it like a Squat

Time for some more squats! For the Back Squats make the goal for this training session to be: hitting absolute depth for what your body is capable of. Even if this means going lighter than you normally would. 

2 Back Squats

Overhead Squat
