We are already one week into our 21 Day Nutrition Kickstart! You can still jump in if you are interested in getting your nutrition in check for the fall. Learn more here.
We are starting a new programming cycle this week. Some of the main priorities in this cycle will be deadlift endurance, upper body pushing gymnastics including pushups and handstands, as well as absolute squat strength. For energy systems, you’ll be seeing some variation, but a bit more emphasis on aerobic power intervals, lactic endurance and muscular stamina. And we’ll be introducing a bit more mobility work within the class setting.
A few notes on how to read the summary below. We’ll identify the main purpose of the workout as far as whether it’s about learning (practice), about getting the work done (training), about assessing (testing) or just about showing up and having a good time (play). We’ll also identify the major energy systems we are using for the conditioning workouts. Ventilation refers to aerobic workouts (heart pumping, lungs burning). Plumbing refers to lactic acid workouts (you know that burning pukey feeling you get from Fran). Electricity refers to the creatine phosphate system (used in short all out sprints or heavy/fast lifts), so you won’t see this as often in the metcon, as it is usually done in the Strength portion of the WOD. Don’t worry if this stuff doesn’t meany anything to you, the most important thing is to show up!
