*When programming deload weeks, there are some movements where I like to keep the load a little heavier just to stimulate the muscles. If you’re feeling tired and your body doesn’t feel prepared for a “heavy single” or a 100% clean pull, don’t be afraid to go off script and keep the load lighter! This is the week to do it!

Monday, October 23rd, 2017-Week Five-Day One- Recovery Week

This week will be used to let your muscles recover as we prepare to move into our next four weeks of training.. which are programmed with lots of focus on increasing our power and confidence in the lifts as a whole.

In this deload week, don’t freak out! Due to the decrease in volume and intensity, recovery weeks can be discouraging and confusing as you begin to feel like you’re losing your strength and technique. DO NOT LET YOUR MIND GO THERE! TRUST that your body needs rest and your muscles need time to repair so that they can get stronger!

I like to look at my deload weeks as an opportunity to “miss” the sport. Missing the sport makes me come back with a vengeance! I feel ready and eager to work my butt off!!
