February 22, 2019 – Competition

For the 2019 Open season, Invictus Athletes’ Camp coach Heidi Fearon has created a bundle of visualizations that will help you find a mindset for optimal performance. Please click here to download your visualizations.

If you are planning to prioritize the Open for the next five weeks, please make that the pure focus each Friday. We have prepared this “Competition” program for those intending on training through the Open, so you will receive a normal training plan with the Open workout incorporated each Friday. For those prioritizing the Open, we have prepared full strategy notes and primers and warm-ups as part of our Invictus Athlete Program. Click here to sign up for Invictus Athlete.

For sets 6-10, let feel dictate loading. The goal is to establish today’s “heavy” lift. “Heavy” for the day is the load immediately before that at which you would lose proper mechanics and positioning. If you determine that you’ve reached that load for the day prior to set 10, stop there.
