Info

This week is the start of a new cycle. Our focus for the next 6 weeks will be on the development of explosive power and refinement of our olympic lifting at 85+% of our 1-rep maxes. Whether you are planning on participating in the open or you are just following us along on this journey of fitness, developing and testing explosive power is a valuable physical trait.

This week will serve as a gentle introduction into the format of the next cycle. Some of the movements during the conditioning will be more simple to allow more focus on the new format of the strength for this week. The conditioning will build in complexity throughout the cycle.

Today we will be pairing a heavy barbell movement and a plyometric movement in hopes of continuing to develop explosive power. You will be working up to a heavy 5 rep front squat across 5 working sets. You will be pairing your squats with tall box jumps as you work up in weight. The goal of the box jumps is to work on maximal vertical displacement of your hips. Set the box at a height that allows you to jump as high as you can and land almost straight legged on top of the box (think about jumping and floating to the top of the box).
