Overview of our programming this week
Our strength and skill-work will focus on legs and Oly lifts. Never miss a leg day!
Monday = Bench Press / Tuesday = Sumo Deadlift / Wednesday = Cleans / Thursday = Tempo Back Squats
We start of the week with an inverted Tabata WOD to build the legs and shoulders. On Tuesday we’ll do interval training that will get the glutes and lats. Wednesday will test your engine on the Assault bike and full-body strength and stability with TGUs. Thursday is full-body with G2O punctuated with hitting that core. Friday will get that heart pumping with a nice triplet of Burpees, KBS and jumping. Saturday will just shred everything with 4 rounds of 5 movements.
