Training Schedule May 10th – May 15th

Happy Mothers Day!

So, back to what we were doing. 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. 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.
