WODS for the Week of 1.10.21

BUILDING AEROBIC CAPACITY!

AEROBIC CAPACITY EXPLAINED…

As Athletes, we all know and understand the concept of ‘constantly varied’, and have come to embrace it in our daily training. We understand that in fitness we specialize in not specializing…and we aspire to become well-rounded and conditioned athletes by way of this philosophy.

At Proximal Strength Endurance, we aim to bridge your ability to perform at your maximum potential–on and off the gym floor. Your intent focus on PR’ing your lifts on the gym floor involves attention to detail–mechanics, technique, and drills. The same can be said on the back lot, where the same attention to detail vastly improves your capacity to run (and WOD) harder and smarter! Combining your weekly WODs with weekly Endurance programming maximizes your potential in both realms.

We program in the following realms throughout the year to develop our athletes in varying capacities to develop that engine.
