Happy Birthday Allison!
Training Cycle Dates: W 10/17/18 – Su 12/9/18
Goals: This cycle we’re dedicating a regular training day (Wednesdays) to heavy unilateral training, utilizing varied dumbbell and kettlebell complexes (mixed with bodyweight exercises) in which the aim will be to work up to a heavy load for the day. Fridays barbell lift will be both the Back Squat and the Front Squat. The Olympic lifting focus will include complexes and isometrics with more time under tension, building on the positional strength developed last cycle. Mondays will continue to be the day on which longer and/or partner workouts will be programmed.
