Training Schedule, February 15th – February 19th

Endurance Training: Use these either between strength training days or four hours before or after a strength workout.

Option 1 (high intensity): 15 – 25 fifty meter sprints with 30-60 second recoveries
Option 2 (high intensity): Run, bike or row 6 rounds of the following intervals: 30 seconds all out effort followed by 2 minutes of moderate pace. Complete all six rounds with no rest between intervals. Include a 2 minute warmup round at the beginning of the sets. (I like this workout, it burns a lot of calories and increases overall power production.)
Option 3 (low intensity): Run 5K, Bike 10 miles (Tobacco Trail down in Cary has a fantastic trail for this swim 1 mile, or row 5K. Keep intensity low, total workout time should be 20-30 minutes.

Coach’s notes:
You will not be able to press as much weight overhead with dumbbells as you do with a barbell. Focus on form and getting the arms straight up overhead with active shoulders. The hang power clean is performed by pulling the bar from above the knee and catching it high, without a full squat.
