This is our deload week and you’ve earned a little extra rest!
We are providing much less volume as a typical week so we can let our bodies have a break. If you need even more rest on some days of this week then take it!

STIMULUS and GOALS
How to Pace: CHALLENGE!
An old classic where back in the day the weight was everything. Now you are a well-oiled machine ready to blow the roof off and not look back. Set a pace off the start and see if you can hang on!
How it should Feel: GASSY! She’s not nice to you, legs will swell up like a balloon, and the run will feel like you’re running in sand. Everything you are feeling is normal, stay calm and don’t let off the pedal.
WORKOUT STRATEGY & FLOW
Run: Very important to approach this within your limitations and not overly aggressive. Effort should be moderately fast (75%+) and adjusted as you get deeper into the rounds. Save the hard push until the last round. Goal should be to run under 2 minutes.
Overhead Squat : Light weight (under -40%) so squat snatch and get right into it. All sets should be completed unbroken while being mindful not to pump through the reps, but rather stay smooth and steady to keep your legs from blowing up.
The SCALING aim is to keep the run aggressive while maintaining unbroken squats.
Scaling option to finish near the target score:
15 Overhead Squats (75/55)
