And so it begins, time for you guys to take on my programming. Good luck.
Below is next week’s program, and as previously advised its 3 days strength training with a shorter, heavier WOD and then 2 days of skills with a longer based WOD, plus your usual Saturday slug fest.
As you will see the WODs on the skill days include the movement that you will focus on in each class, so you have a chance to put your new found skills to the test.
You will notice that for each of the WODs, there are a number of scaling options. These are not inclusive, and you can of course scale the weight/movement further if required (please discuss with the coach taking the class).
The options are there to provide you with a consistent scaling approach for skilled and weighted movements. By using these options, we plan on getting you stronger and more skilled, faster. This should have you hitting the RX movements and weights in no time.
An example of a skilled movement in a WOD may be Handstand Push-ups. When this appears in a WOD, the scaling option would be strict dumbbell press, the scaling option will NOT be half range handstand Push-up (you guys know who you are).
By admitting you cannot complete the RX movement and following the prescribed scaling option, you will, without a doubt, get stronger, quicker, in the movement pattern and be hitting the RX movements sooner.
A full article on scaling will be coming soon!
Have a great week.
