“Katana” Week 4:
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –
Every week leading into the next Open announcement, we’ll have our “Wednesday Primer”.

The aim of the primer is to work in a wide array of motions and movements, fine tuning the body for what is to come. It’s far less about training the engine here, and far more, about training the movements. Let’s move at our best, while keeping the intensity low, moving the body through specific ranges of motion that will prepare us for Friday.

Tomorrow, Thursday, we will have an optional “Pre-Game”. Similar in look and feel to the Wednesday primer, the Thursday Pre-Game is entirely optional. It’s an active recovery session with a touch more skill work, blending in some themes we’ll see today. If we are an athlete that feels *better* the day after an active recovery session, then the pre-game is a great fit. If we thrive off taking a full rest day, and we don’t feel rusty with the movements on Friday due to so, the full rest day absolutely is the go to for you. There is no right or wrong here – entirely based on how you feel as an athlete.

Each week, both the Wednesday Primer and the Thursday Pre-Game will change, based on what we see throughout the weeks in the Open. The aim is to work ranges of motion that we may see Friday, preparing the body and mind.
