Testing Phase: We will be in a Testing Phase starting this week. Over the next two weeks we will be testing our Back Squat (7/19), Snatch (7/23), Front Squat (7/26) & Clean & Jerk (7/30). Over the last 4 weeks we have been working on refining our Barbell Skills and improving our positions. During the next 2 weeks we want to acquire some new and or accurate numbers that we should use for the next Strength Focus, that will begin the week of August 1st.
If you want to get the most out of these Testing Days, I recommend you either take a rest day or come to the gym and focus on some extra Mobility and Get some RomWOD in. We will still be lifting on days between our tests. These days will be focusing on priming the body for the test. DO NOT go heavy or over 80%. Use these sessions to “Grease the Groove” and keep the body from stiffening up. If you know your previous days Max efforts, use that data to strategize your warm up sets.
Once you have a new max or a current max, log that number into Beyond the Whiteboard so you can use the data over the next 6 week strength cycle. Good luck and remember to feel good and feel strong, by taking care of your body with good food, quality rest and good training habits (Warming up and mobilizing what you know needs it). Have FUN!
