    Hi Girls,

    One question regarding tapering week(s). Should I just copy the last recovery week from the training plan? I’m asking because I’m confused regarding strength training. Should I do strength training during tapering in general?

    Thanks!! Laura

    Hi Laura,
    Yes tapering with a recovery week frame work is a good protocol, and get a couple of rest days with light activity before you head out on your climb or adventure. As for strength during a recovery week, here are some examples:
    If an athlete of mine was doing CMF level 4 I would have them do level 1 or 2.
    Skip anything that even resembles ME, if doing standard strength work dial it back to lighter weight and half the sets. Make it more neuro muscular focus and mobility. I hope this helps ( :
