Strength Cycle: Open Cycle – Week 1
*We would normally start a new cycle off with a week of testing, but we’re just hopping right in the cycle this time, instead. We’re bringing back heavy squats and overhead lifts, again. There’s a lot of “unknowns” with the Open, so we hope we don’t repeat anything during the week that would affect our performance at Friday Night Lights, but we won’t know until it happens. So, hang on and hold tight.
OTM for 10min
Life: 1 Power Snatch (S: SS @ 80%)
*Add weight as able
Row 1k or Bike 2k or Run 800m
50 Thrusters – 45/35
