May Programming Breakdown

Summer is right around the corner so the focus this month is strength work to improve function as well as body composition.  The month of May is quite similar to April with a fair amount of strict work as well as definitive energy systems work, however, there is more emphasis on maximal strength this month.  We are performing 3 “strength only days” this month – all on different weeks during the month.  This will allow us to have a single focus and really zero in on where people are weakest not to mention change it up.  The preparation for “Murph” continues, but now most of the work has been done so we are trying to refine what we’ve gained in April.  Another difference this month is less focused anaerobic work – we’ll still train anaerobic systems but it will done in more CrossFit style metcons.  In June, we’ll perform more focused anaerobic work again.  The full month of Mays workouts and notes can be viewed here.

Nutrition

WAG COACH MERRILEE || One of my biggest hurdles as a WAG coach is stressing to members that the number on the scale is just a number and it is just one piece of a much larger picture. I use myself as an example all the time and I am going to share my pictures to show my point. Picture #0 is my first WAG check-in back in February 2016 and I weighed 131 pounds. I hit my various goals through my macros journey; lost weight, gained muscle, hit new pr’s and I am now back to weighing 131 pounds. The scale reads the same 131 but my body composition and how I feel are completely different.

So let’s not put so much importance on our weight and use those other markers such as changes in measurements, body composition, strength, workout pr’s, how our clothes fit and just how much happier and more energy we have as the true standards of success!

(Side note: my ‘Days Apart’ and initial date date are off due to changes in seismic’s systems along my journey. Side note #2: When I first started WAG I checked in via sharing a spreadsheet 🤣)
