Alright back at it.

Sorry folks the blog took a back seat last week, but not to worry we are now back to regularly scheduled programming…

Although it may seem counterintuitive, you don’t get faster, bigger, or stronger during a workout. The main function of hard physical training is to stress your body so it can grow back stronger. Fitness gains come later, during recovery, and recent research is revealing that simply being sedentary post-workout isn’t enough: in order to maximize recovery, you must also relax your mind. We have been practising this with our down regulating breathing after some days.

Remember that stress is subjective: there is no one right way to recover. At the end of the day, recovery is all about doing things that make you feel relaxed and at ease. Food for thought.

Strength:

Fitness:

3×5 (Linear Progression)

Add 5-10lbs from last weeks lifts.

Performance: 5/3/1 week

75% x 5

85% x 3

95% x 1+

Percentages are based off your TRAINING MAX (90% of a recent 1RM). Aim to hit 5 plus on the rep out, but save 2 reps in the tank.
