Final Preparation

Final Preparation
This is the last week of final preparation for hunting. There is a little bit of taper, smart rest, and active recovery. I don't want to lose focus on dominating the mountains, each day we inch closer to the opener. This is what I have been training for all damn year. Monday August 24th, 2015 1. EMOM x1 Snatch 0-3 #135 4-7 #155 8-11 #175 12-15 #155 2.

This is some of the best prep for packing meat out of the mountain and conquering pain that is only temporary. Wednesday August 26th, 2015. MUCH needed day of rest. Thursday, August 27th, 2015. 1. 5-4-3-2-1 for time of: #205 Power Cleans and Front Squats - 2:54 2. EMOM (every minute on the minute) x2 12" Box Back Squats All with #80 Chains which take away all momentum while standing up and add lots of time under tension. This helps any sticky points in your concentric phase of the squat. #165,165,185,185,195,195,195,195,205,205 PLUS chains. 3.

Friday August 28th, 2015 Headed up the my elk spot this weekend - 13 trail cameras to check. They are hella spread out so it is going to be some work. Hopefully I can post some great bulls and learn their habits. It's only a tool for inventory, plus I usually only put them where elk generally rut, not where they summer, however, some bulls hang in the rut areas all summer. 1. Snatch Pull + Snatch High Pull + Full Snatch off blocks #75,105,135,155 2.
