Spring is here! 🌱
This week we continue our Olympic lifting cycle with more cycling of push jerks, cleans, and snatches. This week we’ll be building to a heavy one rep max of each of these movements, so take a look at the programming ahead of time on Triib and plan to show up accordingly so you can have some new max numbers to work off of for the remainder of this strength cycle.
Also, be looking for our new TikTok channel that Jess put together. The fitness world is slowly migrating in that direction! If you’re on TikTok you can add us here.
Yours in the spring celebrations,
Dave & Jess
Programming Focus 🏋️♀️
The strength cycle for the next 8 weeks: Olympic Lifting.
Every week we will get after the Snatch, Clean, and Jerk by programming a strength session 2-3x per week with suggested loading (by feel as well as percentages). The first 4 weeks will hone in on perfecting positions of the pulls, with weight starting in the moderate-to-heavy range (roughly 70-75% of 1RM) and building week after week to a heavy single.
