Hey Team,

Great  job in week 1 of this cycle.  Lots of great feedback and I am super proud of those who embraced the added intensity this week in an effort to explore the limits of their current capacity.  Bravo!  It will pay off huge in time.  Now, for the upcoming week.  Let’s dive in!

In regards to the aerobic work, you will notice that the duration has increased for both days.  This cycle we are focusing on mechanical control, which by natURe, is a skill we must  develop.  With that, you will notice that this week we are using duration as a tool for progressing that skill.  Be mindful of your position.  Be mindful of your breathing.  You will notice that overtime will be the key to efficiency.

With the strength work small I have included notes for small increases to the overall loading.  The goal of this cycle centers around developing sound and competent positions.  We aren’t looking to make large gains here, rather we want to focus on steady progress and deliberate movement.

The capacity work for the week utilizes a few varied formats that will highlight how you choose to transition between movements and intensities.  Developing an awareness around those athlete conversations is extremely valuable, especially as you near the limits of your capacity.  My advice is to lean into the work and welcome the emotions that come with it.  Over time our ability to be comfortable in those moments will define whether or not we can nature an environment where adaptation takes place.

As always, have a good week and keep us posted!
