"Last Week Template for Competition Phase"(2.4.2013)

*New Template for Competition Phase Starting in One Week*

Lifestyle and Fitness Phase will be going on to their fifth week of training out of ten weeks the following week, and the Competition Phase will be finishing up their Final Week of this Template of five weeks, and will move into the Opens Mode Template. We shall be switching to a CrossFit Tester/ Muscular Endurance/Moderate Olympic Lifting Template for the final 8 weeks throughout the beginning to end of the Opens. Olympic Lifting will be continued but just at lighter volume and less intensity. Muscular Endurance Workouts will be introduced, which are basically your grind out workouts with high volume, and a whole bunch of repetitions, where it will take you to muscle failure during some points of the workout to emulate Opens/Regional Workouts. We also will have at least two days of CrossFit Testers and/or Aerobic Power Testers throughout the week. Everyday at Vagabond we continue to have a plan for our athletes, and not guess at what we are doing. Over time through smart programming, we set ourselves up to create good athletes for the sport of fitness, but also gives us an opportunity to keep our clients safe as well.

Forward Progression!
