Training Schedule February 22nd – 27th

This is the 8th week of our periodized schedule and is another de-load week. As with last time, it is a good time to practice yoga, take a long bike ride, or go for a hike. The idea is to rest, recover, and come back stronger next week.

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

Option 1: Low intensity: 2 mile run, 5 mile bike ride, ½ mile swim, 1 mile walk
Option 2: Medium intensity: Jump rope 1 minute on, 1 minute off for 20 minutes
Option 3: High intensity: Tabata intervals. Pick four exercises. Perform 8 total intervals of each exercise consecutively consisting of 20 seconds on, 10 seconds off. Take 1 minute of rest before switching to next exercise. Download Tabata Timer

Part I Strength:
Warm up each exercise with a lighter weight and then with a working weight determined by the push press with barbell or dumbbells, perform the following in a circuit using the same weight:
Back Squat
Push Press
Weighted step ups
10 reps, 3 rounds
Rest 1 minute between sets.

Coach’s notes:
For push press, use approximately 85-90% of your 1RM of your overhead press. For weighted step-ups, use either dumbbells or barbell racked on shoulders as if for back squat. Use a 12-18 inch box for step ups, alternate steps.
