Week 8/12 

Strength deload week. 

This week we pull back on the lifting volume and get ready for the final 3 weeks of this block (testing weeks). These will be pretty full on, so this current week could be a good time to pull back your training slightly and get yourself in a good state to give it your best shot. Try not to over train this week, get plenty of sleep, keep hydrated and stay on top of mobility. There are a few opportunities for intensity but on the whole this week should be fun 🙂

No percentage work or heavy back squats this week. 

Highlights this week: 

  • Fun partner workout 
  • Open workout 
  • Barbell complexes 
  • Chances to work on skills / weaknesses
