Workouts for Week of July 1st

The month of July is about trust. The ivy entwined around our crest represents the bonds we create with our teammates: how they keep us together, challenge us to grow, and hold us up.

Monday
WEIGHTLIFTING
2 SNPP + 2 OHSQ 6x1 on a 2:00 INT

*Calculate your 1RM weighted pull up including your body weight + additional weight, then do your percentages off of this total and subtract your body weight to figure out additional weight…or just work up as close as you can to a 10RM on the third set.

In your first year or more you can come in and PR everyday, as intra and inter neuromuscular adaption, coordination, VO2max, technique, strength, cross-sectional muscle diameter, efficiency, and other factors improve.

Past that point, growth is slower, and in increasingly painful slower increments. Percentage work becomes more critical as you move forward and continue to make increasingly smaller improvements.

Starting Monday, July 1st we will begin our most exacting programming cycle to date. Ratios of “sprint”, “interval”, and “long slow distance” (LSD) training in relation to your traditional conditioning workouts (running, rowing, swimming) and your “metabolic conditioning (MetCons)” are all carefully calculated to maximize your return on time investment.

Percentages based off your goal, projected, or actual competition or gym one rep max (1RM) for all strength and power work are suggested as the most efficient road to hitting your goals.

Please keep in mind that everyone is not exactly the same. There will be percentage schemes that work for you and others that will not. What is suggested for newer and more experienced members is a generalized approach that will be very successful for the vast majority of people. The longer you train, the more specific your training needs to be, so you may need to make adjustments over the years as you reach different plateaus.

Please log all of your workouts on BtWB and track your progress!!
