Upcoming Programming Template
For the next 4 weeks we'll be running the following training template for our lifting. As always there will be additional conditioning or assistance work each day.
Mondays: Olympic Lift complexes alternating between Snatch and Clean each week. We're looking to build better positions and speed on these days. Emphasis on clean movement and no missed lifts.
Wednesdays: Speed Box Squats. These will be light and fast and be based off your most recent 1RMs.
Thursdays: Push Presses. Two weeks of heavy triples, one week of heavy doubles, one week for a heavy single. No Missed Lifts
Saturdays: Front Squats. Two weeks of heavy triples, one week of heavy doubles, one week for a heavy single. No Missed Lifts
Sundays: Longer duration Metcons 15-20min+
