Block programing also helps you gauge how much weight or which movements to scale.
WHAT IS BLOCK PROGRAMMING?
For example, lets say you have 1 Block (10 min) to complete 5 rounds of 12 strict pull-ups and 10 pistol squats.
You should look at the workout and time so that you can pick the appropriate scaling options for each movement in order to finish in the 10 min time cap.
- If it takes you 5 min to get 12 pull-ups, and you can’t do pistol squats, you can guess that the goal is not to perform 20 pull-ups and no squats in 10 min.
- Perhaps you could do band-assisted pull-ups and single leg box squats.
- Perform the movement and range of motion, but scale loading and intensity to complete the training as intended.
