May Programming Notes
As most of you have seen or done, the last week of April we tested our pull ups. During this month, we will be working on increasing our strength and finishing our 5 week pull up program. After finishing, we will retest to see our growth.
We are also changing up our strength movements. Think along the lines of same but different. They will hit similar areas of the body, but in a different manner. We will be doing our front squat work on Mondays/Tuesdays, military press on Wednesdays/Thursdays, and our Deadlifts on Saturdays. There will be some assistance work on our strength days, but with our class time limited, expect to see some on our conditioning days as well.
A big part of our programming is going to be taking the time and effort to recover properly. With military press and all the pull ups in our programming, our shoulders are going to be working very hard. Take a little time at the end of class or after to stretch or foam roll appropriately.
