RACE WEEK Day 1 – (sets x reps) – rest 60-90 seconds between sets 7×2 Squat Clean (75%-80% of 1 RM) This should be explosive and quick 5×3 // 1-1-1-1-1… Deadlift (Start at a low weight and increase weight each set of 3 reps unbroken ie don’t drop the bar. You should be about 90% of your 1RM once you start doing single reps. Just a reminder that, as always, FORM should NOT be sacrificed. If you feel your form start to break down, then it’s time to stop.) Day 2 – 15min AMRAP of CINDY 5-pull ups 10 – push up 15-squats Note: This should be preformed at about 90% effort. Pace this so that you are able to keep moving for the entire 15 min. Day 3 – Active rest day (i.e. a really good warm up and an 80% 2-3 mile jog. You just need to get you warm on this day, but keep your intensity low.) This is also a really good day to spend some time on the foam roller/lacrosse balls/bands and get your legs, hips and hams stretched and loose. Day 4 – 6 rounds of tabata (20sec work 10sec rest – 1 min rest between rounds) a) Running – sprint for 20 sec, rest for 10 b) KB or Dumbell Swing – 44#/26# c) Sit Ups d) Row for Calories” Day 5 – REST Day 6 – RACE DAY
