27MAY2015 – Post-Murph Update
So, we’ve been going hard on our DarkSide-12 program since the end of March. Monday marked the beginning of a deload week for us at the gym. “Murph” might seem like a strange way to start off an easier week but easier isn’t necessarily what our deload week will be about. Rather expect to see an emphasis on spending more time with learning the mechanics of gymnastic movements. Also, expect to see poundages dialed back on barbell lifts. Believe it or not 300 air squats should be much easier on your body than 5×5 at a high percentage.
Looking forward expect to see Monday start off another 3 week mesocycle with a renewed focus on heavy barbell lifts. We’ll cap it off with retesting and then get back to more traditional CrossFit programming. Get ready for the gains!
We’ll also NOT be posting the WODs on here everyday. They’ll be up in WODIFY at 12:00am the day of the workout. This will shift to more of a blog/informational format.
