Recovery Day.

Recovery is about pro-actively speeding up your recovery. This involves getting blood flowing, massage, ART, active recovery, mobility work, foam rolling, yoga, compression, voodoo flossing and anything else that might promote recovery. The activity selected must be restorative for you. It can also be an opportunity to work on a skill, but the effort expended should leave you feeling energized at the end of the session, not depleted. Get some blood flowing to aid in your recovery. 

A.) Skill work:

4×8 false grip pull-ups while in hollow position- rest 60 seconds. 
Use a band for assistance if needed. Pulls should be explosive.

B.) MetCon:
Get outside and drag a sled for 30-45 minutes.

C.) Mobility and Maintenance
Choose 1-2 Thoracic Drills (upper back) and spend 5-10 minutes on them.
Choose 2-3 Lower Body Drills (hips, ankles) and spend 10-12 minutes on them.
Choose 1-2 Upper Extremity Drills (shoulders) and spend 5-10 minutes with them.
