Tuesdays will be one of two gym days on the schedule for the rest of the season. We will be doing full-body workouts with an emphasis on either the upper or lower body. Every workout will begin with some preventative care and restoration work. Simple exercises that can help add robustness to the athlete. Today we have a lower body focus but still training with full body lifts. These workouts should be completed in under an hour and leave you feeling BETTER than when you got to the gym. Now is not the time of year to be chasing personal bests. Do the movements and be happy you made the time to finish it.
