Two weeks until the Blue Ridge Open!
You are free to customize your own schedule based on your goals and available time. With the exception of weightlifting team, we will be doing two linear strength days and two conditioning days focusing on power and/or endurance. On 5×5 days, we will ideally be working with 80%-85% of our 1RM for that particular lift. On 3×10 days, we will be working with 70%-75% of our 1RM. However, for those of you who are new to lifting, we may need to work with lighter weights. Rest between sets is very important to allow for enough recovery to succeed with this format.
Beginners, stick with your circuits. You can start incorporating some of the alternative exercises we’ve used in our training sessions.
Those of you looking to lose bodyfat, include a 30-45 minute medium intensity steady state cardio session 3-5 times per week at least 4 hours before or after your workout. This can be a bike ride, fast walk, jog, treadmill at an incline, etc.
