HERE WE ARE!!!! MAX OUT WEEK #1!!! FOCUS OF THE WEEK: IT IS ALL MENTAL!!!!!
Straight to the point. Monday- Back Squat, Tuesday- Strict Press and Push Press, Friday-Snatch This is what you all have been working for! To test real numbers. If you have been here for the 10 weeks, KUDOS!!!! If you haven’t, still show up and see where you are. If you are new? Perfect timing to get in and get some numbers and lay down foundation. Remember we will be doing other workouts that will help relieve tension about maxing and getting the body moving. So try and come in Wednesday and if you have been coming to Gymnastics, then even better. We will be testing some body weight movements to see your improvement!
5 Simple steps to follow during Max out weeks:
1. Get plenty of sleep (rest)
If you are the person that needs 8-10 hrs of sleep, try your best to get them. If you work fine with 5-7 hrs and coffee is your friend then do the same you have been doing for the last few weeks. If you have no choice, then suck it up and get your mind right before you come in =)
2. Fuel your body
Eat what you have been eating normally, don’t all of the sudden change your nutrition now. It takes time for your body to adapt to change. Allow it.
3. Show up
Whether you have been here or not, your body is ready to do some work so plan for it and do the best you can for that day.
4. Trust yourself
This is your reward. You get to test your progress and all the hard work you have put in. For some of you might be skill but still its progress.
5. Have fun and remember its all mental
Yes be in the zone but remember to have fun so that your body is not tensed up and you are not overthinking. It is all mental when you are prepared. If you don’t hit what you want, then great even more work to do. Enjoy the process =) I am ready to see some good numbers up there guys haha so no pressure!
Also, if you are kind of new at this, enjoy it because your numbers might have a jump as you get your technique dialed in. For some of us that have been at it for a while, that 5 pound PR is gold haha!
