Tuesday was the last day of March, but this week was also the start of the April training cycle. Let's talk briefly about what you can expect this month.
Skill work - April's skill work will be more structured than what we've done in the past, based on our group's specific goals and needs. We'll work on the same elements every week much like we do with weight lifting. For example, today we alternated DU practice with pistol technique. We'll do the same thing on another day next week and hopefully you'll have an 'ah-ha!' moment when you get more double-unders in a minute or perform a better pistol than you could before.
Strength work - April's strength work will return to the basic barbell lifts we worked on in January: the deadlift, bench press, back squat, and shoulder press. We'll do a week of 5-rep maxes, a week of 3-rep maxes, a week of 1-rep maxes, and a de-load week. Expect to see bigger numbers than you got in January.
WODs - The WODs are always a surprise, of course. This month you can anticipate the return of several Girl WODs, as well as some single-modality benchmarks/tests of skill. Each week will also feature a power training day like today's, where we use precise work/rest intervals.
