Performance & General Fitness
10 Rounds For Quality

Min 2: 1 Lap Sled Push
Min 3: Rest

*MOD to Ring Rows and Banded Push-ups if needed

Prioritize clean movement. If you need to make adjustments to sled weight no problem, just know what you need so it can be done fairly fast. Take that Min to recover and reset for the next round.

Open Gym: 10-11:00AM 

Outside the Gym:  Go Do something active for 30-60+ mins at at moderate pace preferably with friends or family. (hike, jog, paddle, row, bike etc.) What you do matters less than just doing the duration at a conversational pace.  A few of these easy sessions per week can really enhance your cardiovascular base which will help with both high intensity performance & recovery.

Mental Restoration: Carve a little time today (but really everyday) to slow down and prep for next week. Plan Meals, stretch out, meditate? Set yourself up for success cause those that fail to plan are planning to fail.
