“Life Lifting” with Coach Kevin: 8-9pm, Lincoln Square. All members welcome!
This week is our 1st week of a 5 week strength cycle. The 5 week cycle will lead up to our next Murph Event on Saturday, June 21st.
The next 5 weeks we will be focused on the following:
- “Murph Prep: Additional strict pullup work, and increasing volume of pushups in wods
- Developing Pull Power: Power cleans, paced deadlifts and grip strength movements
- Increasing Squat 1rm: Explosive leg exercises and a more focused squat program
- Balancing the Posterior Chain and building a stronger core: Uni-lateral lifts and increasing hamstring development
The wods for the next 5 weeks will primarily be more strength biased and there will be more consistentcy with our week to week development of the squat, deadlift and pulling movements; as well as a increased focus on strict bodyweight movements like the pullup, pushup and Handstand pushup. You will also see Bonus rounds offered Monday-Wednesday focusing on strength accessory work and core development that will accompany that particular day’s work.
