Don’t forget…the TJ’s Games are coming. Sunday, October 28th at the Marin Civic Center. Huge venue, huge event. If you think the Olympians are inspiring, you’ll be in awe of what our community churns out at this event! Hyperbole? Perhaps. But it really will be a great day.

Here are some reminders about Phase 2 which we are in now:

Phase 2 (CP Translating/Lactic Power/Aerobic Power)

The CP Translating phase will be an attempt on our part to see our athletes translate their new found strength to higher skill lifts. This phase will be predominantly focused around speed/power lifts. Olympic weightlifting will be critical to this step as will things like broad jumps and tall box jumps and even overhead med ball tosses. Seeing that strength from phase 1 translates to more coordinated movements is a goal as is seeing speed under load improve.

Lactic Power session will start to show up a couple times a week. This will be perfect sense they often utilize olympic weightlifting which sticks with the theme of this phase.

Aerobic Power – These sessions will also pop up a couple times a week during this phase and the clients will be getting used to them by now. These workouts are meant to be performed at 80-90% effort. That effort is different for each person but has one thing in common, it is sustainable for many minutes. Starting to see that your 90% is improving is fun.
