I am so ready to taper! Feel like I've been going hard since Jan and want to back off...let's hope I get the taper right!

I did this one of Fort's toda:
Warm up:

4 x 50 torque drill w/paddles @ 1:20

I'm still not sure what I'm getting from this. Will see Fort at zones...and go over it.

100 EZ
I feel fast!

Pyramid 50 frees:

    I think of the torque drills as a mini in water plyo. Almost like doing a med ball slam but you're simulating a fly pull. I love that drill and wish that I could do it right now.
