G.P.P training program 9th-15th November

Posted 8th November 2020 by Geoff Stewart

First week of lockdown and here comes lock down mark 2 GPP training program. Let be honest with this one, what a pisser but we all know the score so let’s make the best of it retain those gains, build on those skill and generally keep yourselves look and feeling fine.

 

These workouts are designed to as closely as possible follow the existing plan. We now it’s not going to be the same as equipment and space is going to be an issue for many, just do the best you can, but DO. The Olympic lifting days are about honing your skills, drilling your positions, so the focus is form.  The exercise days again are designed to work specific area and groups of muscles. If you don’t have enough weight remember tempo is a great alternative, work the eccentric portions (lowering) of exercise slowly with control and focus on squeezing the appropriate muscle groups. The WODS or workouts should be hard and fast but always with form.

 

Good luck stay strong mentally and physically and we all shall come through the other end.

 

Monday – Snatch

Tuesday – Hamstring and pressing

Wednesday – Cleans

Thursday – Gymnastics

Friday – Squats and Pulling

Saturday – Working hard.

Sunday – whatever you have not done.
