Reload & Maintenance Phase
Over the course of the next 10 days, we will look at incorporating a RELOAD phase, to help members adjust back into a more intense style of training (with heavier loading, increase technical movements etc.). This 10days will focus on being able to auto-regulate some of the loading yourself, based on feel etc. We understand some members have had access to kit and been able to maintain a decent standard of training, whilst others have had limited kit, therefore having to adapt their usual training style more so.
The intensity levels of the workouts, will be gradual, so at the end of the 10-day period the works will become progressively harder. This will from a loading, technical and/or intensity perspective. The idea of this phase it to allow our bodies and central nervous system to adapt back into specific movement patterns that we may not have been able to perform, as different loads and/or different intensities/complexities. Please use these 10 days as a time to adjust and analyse your focuses within your specific pathways and don’t be too fixated on the numbers, times, etc. Be reflective and be smart.
Moving past this RELOAD phase, we understand that December can be a tough month to sometimes obtain consistent training (in the gym environment). This is not to say the training doesn’t continue, but often or not disruptions will occur this time of year – not that we need or want any more disruptions to this year! Therefore, the remainder of year will focus on a maintenance phase. This will entail just keeping our strength levels sustained, improving our gymnastic skills – through standalone strength and endurance and varying the metabolic conditioning elements, to keep the aerobic and anaerobic systems sharp. This phase will also see some fun festive workouts, such as the 12 days of Christmas and new year workouts etc.
