DELOAD WEEK – This is compulsory for everyone and focuses on taking the load off our bodies and giving our joints and tendons a chance to recover. You may choose to scale workouts accordingly and focus more on the accessory work as well. When we work with barbells this week its not about load but rather moving at a slower tempo and engaging core and supporting muscles. Some will find this week challenging in a good way. Enjoy the break from lifting.

  • 150m Farmers Walk (grip strength is focus)
  • 10 x Bentover Row
  • 10 x OHS (pause in bottom for 1-2 secs each squat)
