Over the next weeks, we are going to be focusing more on hypertrophy in bi-lateral movement (bench, squats, deadlifts) to build better connective tissue and ligament strength in order to support heavier training intensity down the road. We will also be breaking down gymnastics movements into skill-work pieces to work better positional strength to translate to better movement with things like handstands, rings and bar work. At the end of this cycle, we will not re-test, we will go right into an absolute strength block followed by a power block. You can expect to see some short, short sprints on things like the assault bike, sled, and rower. This does a great job of carrying over into intensity in those 3-8 minute conditioning pieces. We will also continue to work on aerobic capacity during this time using intervals in order to help you recover from training volume, as well as not build too much intensity and adrenal fatigue from training loads.
