PHASE 1 (1/2-1/15) #RareBreed Training Blog

MEMBERS ONLY

January 2nd – January 15th

This is the first two weeks in our training cycle.  As we get into this phase we have three areas of focus.

1: Build a strong base level of strength.

2: Increase joint mobility and stability

3: Strengthen our pillar

The training split is as follows:

Monday:                      Absolute Strength: Upper Body

Tuesday:                      Dynamic Strength: Lower Body

Wednesday:                Recovery

Thursday:                    Dynamic Strength Upper Body

Friday:                         Absolute Strength: Lower Body

Saturday:                     Linear Speed

Sunday:                       Recovery

 

As we go through this cycle your goal should be to get a solid routine of training hard and recovering smart.  That means that for the 60-90 minutes that you are training you are focusing on pushing your physical limits.  The remainder of the day needs to be focused on your nutrition, hydration, and recovery.
