Push Press, Single Leg Work, Pull/Muscle up track
Training Cycle Dates: M 4/5/21 – 5/31/21 (8 weeks plus Test Week)
Goals: Improve Pulling Strength for Pull ups or Muscle ups. Become stronger with a vertical press and technique with the push press. Focus on single leg work in the middle of the week to correct imbalances.
**This will start Wednesday since the open was heavy on the pulling. We will take a breather on Monday and Tuesday before we hit the pulling test**
We will have a Muscle up Track and Chest to Bar/Pull up Track will be our skill work then we will do a workout that compliments.
Longer Endurance Day
We will push 20 minutes on most Tuesdays with Running, Rowing and Biking coupled with barbell and or DB movements that compliment Monday and Wednesday.
Single Leg Work
-We will push and pull (Bulgarian split squats, RDLs and Split Squats)
-Using a single leg day to build strength on both sides and prevent any imbalances
-Alternating between weeks where it is in the workout and set up as a separate strength piece
Building EMOMs and Complexes

Weeks 1 and 2: 4 x 10
