Halfway through this strength cycle!
This week we will be tackling our 3RM press, push press, and thruster. For the next two weeks we will be working off of those number, so keep it handy. And in 3 more weeks we will be re-testing our press, push press, and thruster to see how much we have improved. And if you have been hitting even 1 or 2 of these lifts each week you will certainly improve from where you started with our initial 1RM test.
"Relax to run faster." That might seem like a nearly impossible thing to do if you're already not great friends with running, but take a look at this article. It proposes that by letting your jaw hang loose (and even have your mouth open) along with letting your wrists hang loose that this will encourage the rest of your body which does not need to be tense while running to remain loose. Tightening up muscles which are not in use will put further strain on your body if you're already fatigued. So, makes sense to let everything else hang loose to not add any unnecessary stress!
