Macro – Extended Conditioning Emphasis – Week 1 of 12

Micro – Trunk Emphasis – Week 1 of 4

It’s summer and we know you guys love to sweat and like the longer conditioning efforts. Moving forward through the summer for the next 12 weeks we will be placing an emphasis on extended conditioning efforts. Aside from any Holiday weeks, we will be keeping to a templated format, you can expect longer conditioning efforts Tuesday/Thursday/Saturday, and shorter conditioning efforts on Monday/Wednesday/Friday. Longer conditioning efforts doesn’t mean you won’t be using heavier weights, high skills gymnastics, etc. it just means we will be prioritizing the programming into extended conditioning efforts on those days. With this 12 weeks we will be running 3 Micro Emphasis’ in 4 week blocks, starting with Trunk strength these first 4 weeks.
