Our next benchmark test is next week and here is a sneak peak on some of the movements – kettlebell swings, box jumps, and burpees. Scott has put them together in a simple and unique way that brings a smile to my face just thinking about 🙂
Next week, the official test days are Monday and Saturday. Of course, if you can’t make those days, you should perform the test sometime next week.
Scott will be sending a guide for tapering before benchmark tests. Tapering is adjusting training frequency, intensity, and volume before an important event to achieve optimum results.
Everyone can benefit from the knowledge and the process of tapering. For advanced athletes, it is essential you approach an event/test rested, sharp, and excited to perform.
Members, look for Scott’s Tapering article in your inboxes later today. Part III of the three part series of “Carbs, Curls, and Cardio” will be delivered to you next week!
