Cycle 11!

Weighted Tool Week and Puzzle Week have been a blast, but we’re excited to start this next 14-week training cycle next week! We have some great tests coming your way in Test Week.

There are a few things to note about the tests. Monday’s test is a true test of the glycolytic energy system. To perform this test correctly, you should move at maximum intensity for the entirety of each short interval. Tuesday, tests the 1RM Clean and jerk. We wanted to get an olympic lift in this cycle’s Test Week, and this lift was a great option because it covers squatting and pressing – two important components of strength. Wednesday’s endurance test involves some high skill movements and some heavy lifting. You’ll see your first exposure to Balance exercises in the Wednesday workout. Balance will be a main skill focus this cycle, and you’ll see it come up in Friday’s bodyweight test as well. Thursday’s test is all about Cycle Speed. You’ve gotta be fast through each round in order to continue with the workout. Speed is another skill focus of this cycle.
