Deload Week
*Should I Deload this week?
If you have been with us for 1+ month and need the deload, then take it!
If you are new and feel good (or had to take time off on other weeks), then carry on! (You can look back at past weeks for more workouts)

*IF you feel overtrained or just out of it, that is okay. Many have been there before. If you need to take a full week off and workout very little to even none, then do it. This is literally the best time of the year for you to do so.

*BOTTOM LINE: Continue to listen to your body and rest, recover and reenergize as needed during these deload weeks.

*We provide 5 “Ways to deload” in the workout notes. In summary if you need the deload, we’d recommend scaling back the volume and intensity in a way that best suits your individual recovery. Only doing 1 session and keeping intensity under 80% for the metcons (and potentially under 8/10 RPE for the lifts) is a great starting point.

*Other Ways to Deload
Completely resting on a day when you’d normally workout (like a Tuesday or Wednesday)
Only performing 1 part of the metcon instead of the multiple parts
Not going above 80% in the metcon
Resting from the Strength and/or accessory
Only do 1 session instead of multiple sessions
A combination of 1-5 above

*Indicators I need to Deload and/or rest for at least week
Training is rarely fun anymore. 99%+ of us workout for fun! If working out is always just a chore or “have to” then take some extra time to rest and get outside of the gym. The workouts will still be here when you get back.
Lack of appetite for food compared to typical hunger levels
Trouble sleeping or falling asleep
Constantly tired, fatigued and/or just feeling overtrained
Soreness levels are way beyond what they usually are
Inability to keep intensity levels high (80%+) in most workouts

How to Pace: SPRINT. This workout should be one where you are able to hold onto big sets with minimal rest. The workload is intentionally low as a deload week. Move quickly and enjoy the lowered volume.

How it should Feel: GASSY. With the short time domain and big, fast sets, you will likely be out of breath with some muscle fatigue.

WORKOUT STRATEGY & FLOW

Dumbbell Snatches: Open Standards Workout 1 should be a weight that you can do quick singles or touch n go sets of 3-4+ at a time. Set up with purpose and use all the hip drive to keep the movement fluid.

Air Squats: Fast and furious is the goal here! Unbroken is ideal
