Welcome to Phase 5, week 5 of our 2018 training plan.

Week 5. It’s time to change it around a little. This week your primary lifts will remain the same but your rep ranges will be coming down… so (as you all know) your weight will be going up. We are still aiming to get a lot of work (volume) into these sessions, so you’ll need to set yourselves up and be aware of what’s going on. Please don’t chase the weight too much. Make sure you’re nailing your form on all your exercises.

 

When you’re doing step-ups or box jumps, please make sure you’re stepping or jumping powerfully. Stay tall and open your hips, don’t just climb up on the box.  When you’re using a kettlebell, make sure you finishing each rep in a positive position: strong wrist, good rack position and feeling solid. There are workouts where you’ll be getting some rest; earn that rest…

Welcome to Phase 5, week 4 of our 2018 training plan.

Week 4. Another week under those ever tightening belts. Our basic lifts and numbers are the same as last week so keep it simple make sure your form is good and you’re moving well. Remember the key to this phase is building an even bigger, better, more solid foundation. We are hunting out the BURN on some of the YGIG – and not talking sun burn, people.

You’ll need to be organised this week. Make sure your equipment is ready and in the right place. When setting up please be mindful of your fellow members’ working space, equipment and health and safety in general…
