Group Conditioning Training Note:***NEW TRAINING CYCLE***

We are excited to add a new element to our training program: specific training phases with testing and re-testing weeks to work on different aspects of our fitness throughout the year and help everyone improve more.

The goals of each phase will flow from one phase into the next and we'll have lots of fun re-resting our abilities at the end of each cycle.

This is the first week of a 7 week training cycle at the gym. We will be focused on improving our peak power out-put and strength. This will culminate in a Power Lifting Total (Back Squat, Bench Press and Deadlift) Max-out day on Saturday Dec 13th, and week of re-testing our conditioning benchmarks on the week starting Dec 15.

Make sure you're training consistently to see the biggest change possible!

[accordiontabs] [tab title="Weekly Warmup"] 2-3mins @ 70% effort: run, airdyne, skip or row, then 2-3 sets of: 6-12 perfect push-ups + dynamic quad stretch 90sec/side + 60sec/side calf smash + 10 perfect box jumps [/tab]

[tab title="Group Metcons"] Monday A. (TESTING) Max chest to floor push-ups in 60sec. Rest 3mins. B. (TESTING) 60sec Row For Metres. C. 4 sets each, in teams, only one person working at a time: Row 150m + 6 burpees. *notes for A: if your chest doesn't touch, it doesn't count. If you rest/flop on the floor, it doesn't count. If your thighs touch the floor, it doesn't count. Be strict here. *notes of B: Set the rowing machine up for exactly 60sec to get an exact score. This is full out with a sprint start.

Tuesday Option A: Make-up day for this week's testing workouts. Option B: 8min AMRAP: 30 double unders + 20 ball slams + 10 box jumps (step down)

Wednesday TESTING: Fran or Modified Fran (21-5-9 on Thrusters, Burpees) *notes: If you can't do at least 15 consecutive pull-ups when you're fresh, do the burpees version. The idea is that this is a hard, hitting, full blast workout with constant or near-constant movement. If you have to take a lot of rest between pull-ups because of strength-endurance, this workout will no longer be testing what we want it to.
