Now that we are in the thick of TEST WEEK at Oak Park, I wanted to start the conversation about SEASONALITY. 

As you know, the coaches plan out 3 x 14-week Training Cycles per year.  Each cycle has a general plan but with targeted priorities, exposures/movements and most importantly..a Test & Re-Test.  All of that is well and good, but what do we do in the interim?  After this Test Week, you’ll have 6 weeks before the next cycle….what to do???

Over the years I’ve experienced the value of creating “seasons” with regards to my training.  During this 6 week hiatus and into the next Training Cycle, I’m planning on a more restorative movement practice and taking control of my diet.  In no way will this be my “Off Season”.  These two factors are as challenging to me as anything I do. 

Just like in the natural world, seasons restore and replenish the environment to be more resilient for the next season…I hope you do the same!
