"Cycle 6 Week 5 is here, but don't get scared yet, Hell-week is not next week. This cycle we are going to stretch a couple weeks longer to complete this particular strength progression which gives you more time to work on these movements. This week our tempo is quicker, and our rep reps are lower, which means you should be increasing in weight from last week the Front Squat, Deadlift, Single-Leg, and Push Press. For the olympic lifting this week, we are continuing to focus on Power movements to develop speed and power in the pull. With complexes like the ones we have this week, it is best to think of it as technique, skill, and speed work rather than pushing the weights and getting sloppy. At the risk of sounding like a broken record, leave your egos at the door on Tuesday for the Metcon. We are playing with some high reputation deadlifts at a decent weight. You should pick a weight and a speed at which you can maintain near perfect form. And remember trying to go unbroken is usually not the best plan of attack. Have fun this week, and here is a little tidbit of wisdom from the 2015 Crossfit Games Champ Ben Smith from an interview with BeyondtheWhiteboard."
Q: If you could go back and change one thing about your training when you first found CrossFit, what would it be?
A: I would max out lifts less often and work more on higher volume at a high percentage of my 1RM.
