Wrapping Up Cycle 11
It’s time to wrap up Cycle 11! Next week is the final training week of the cycle before testing, and it is Recovery Week! You’re gonna see three Practice Recovery Days: one on Tuesday, one on Wednesday, and one on Friday. The intention is for you to make these some of your lowest intensity workouts. Think “Active Recovery”; In other words, move and recover at the same time.
There will also be a Mental Toughness Day and a Competition Day. These are not deliberate Recovery Days, so feel free to let it rip if that’s what you want/need. However, it’s totally OK to dial it back on these days, if you want to expand the theme of recovery.
Even if you haven’t been working out regularly and feel as though you may not be ready for recovery, keep in mind that the following week is Retest Week. It will be an intense week (Refer back to Test Week for the workouts), and you will want to be performing at your best. To further help prep, remember to be smart and healthy over the weekend before that week starts. Rest, hydrate, and eat right.
Here’s to a great couple of weeks!
