Last month we tackled some big workouts- the biggest being Murph, Cindy, and Point Break! Another milestone in May was the 6-week Wendler Cycle which was built perfectly into the month giving everyone a deload from the bar to right around the big Memorial day workout. Lastly, we finished our strict gymnastics cycle that spanned 9 weeks! We are confident that plenty of athletes saw improvements in their strict pulling/pushing and hopefully some got their first strict HSPU/Pull-up /or Ring Muscle Up! All these points lead us nicely into June where we will shift gears and begin preparing for our next major cycle CAPACITY, kicking off in July.
Let’s talk about what we have in store for JUNE! We start the month strong by finishing off our Wendler Cycle with a retest of our 1-Rep Push Press/Back Squat/Deadlift. We will also see some basic kipping gymnastics skill work 1-2 times a week that will involve either the Pull-Up/HSPU/Muscle-Up. This will be reflected both in dedicated skill sessions and workouts. We will also have 1-2 Oly positional days to get us ready for our Oly cycle coming up in July. These days will be labeled as strength but loading will stay light to moderate to allow us to focus intently on position.
Excited to kick off this summer training with you!
