Welcome to PR week. Drew says, “Make sure you are ready and writing down your PRs. There are gonna be plenty this week."
During the summer our focus is getting stronger. That’s why you have seen a lot of back squats, presses, and deadlifts in the MODs. You’ve been working hard these last 12 weeks during this linear strength progression. So this week we’ll measure progress with 1-RM testing. Preparing for a 1-RM takes longer, especially if you are a strong lifter. If you need more time to to mobilize and get warm, feel free to come in a bit earlier. This will allow more time in class to lift. Come well hydrated. These tests will also greatly tax your neuromuscular system. That means that even though you don’t feel sore, expect for power output and speed to decline. Recovery is super important this week.
Following the 1-RM testing week we will continue progressing absolute strength via a 4-week Wendler cycle.
A big shout out to Doyle, Karen, Alex, Tracy, Avery, JT, Kelly, and Skye for helping us out while we we gone. We’re pretty excited to bring back some new techniques and insights we gained the last few days at the National Strength and Conditioning Association annual conference. It’s also great to see that what we’ve been doing at CFHP is still cutting edge and common sense at the same time. Thank you to all the folks that stepped it up this weekend!
Are a great way for both new and seasoned athletes to build a broader foundation and hone their skills. We’re really excited about the skill clinics coming later in July and August.
