Structure, Positional Work, and Gymnastics – Deload Week!

Here we are team! We are into our final week of the current training cycle. Some of you have already been hitting some big PB numbers which is great to see, but if you haven’t then don’t worry about it too much. We’ve got two weeks of testing coming up next week where you’ll have a chance to take stock in where your lifts currently stand.

This week we’ll be taking a step back from all the heavy lifting you’ve been doing and working through a deload week. If you’re wondering what a “deload” means, it’s essentially a week of rest or a reduction on the weight and/or volume of what your training cycle has involved.

Aside from when we tell you to deload (as its naturally built into training cycles for a purpose) there may be a few tell-tale signs that your body might be calling for a bit of a step back from all of the heavy training / lifting. Here’s a few of the key ones below:

You are generally weaker as the weeks go on

If you’re getting sore joints / recovery is slow

If you’ve just had a heavy training period / event

All of these cases can be the result of not only the stress that you put on it via your training, but also your everyday life stress that puts a strain on your central nervous system.

So all in all – take advantage of the fun workouts planned for this upcoming deload week and listen to your body!
