Happy Labor Day! My personal take on Labor Day is that it is a way to honor mothers and so I take the day off. Of course, holiday weekends always warrant a little slacking off in my opinion. Or maybe I’m just lazy.
So, same as last week, training for the Warrior Dash! And that means MORE RUNNING!
Again, if running isn’t your thing, well, I have almost eight months of training schedules to choose from here. Pick one and get started. If you haven’t noticed, I have a google search function at the bottom of the page so that you can search my blog for different exercises and training schedules. For example, tire flips. Here is a picture of Jason Davidson, my fellow weightlifting coach, demonstrating a tire flip with one of the lighter tires over at the Athletic Performance Center.
Tuesday, August 7th
Clean and jerk, eight sets of doubles, increase weight to a max
Assistance, sumo deadlift, 3×10 (yes, this works the adductors and helps you get up from your front squat without your knees caving in)
