The Week Ahead...



We're back on undulating strength programming after a brief detour in to a 1RM max testing cycle. We're simultaneously building work capacity and strength by varying intensity and rep ranges for our skill/strength work within the same microcycle (AKA week). As we draw closer to the CrossFit Open, you will see a reduction in the variety of exercises and an increase in the usage of "classic" CrossFit movements such as high volume pull-ups, wall balls, toes-to-bar, handstand push-ups, etc. WODs are generally staying in the 10-15 minute range, though you will see some shorter (6-8 minute), and one longer (20+ minutes) each week. If you are feeling the volume, remember that you are the master of your destiny: scale and deload as needed, and modify workouts in order to elicit a positive response - don't go to absolute fatigue, strategize, and BE SAFE!
