Re: What to do with mandatory PT in the AM?

On occasion, I only have enough time to get EITHER a strength session or a short WOD before PT. In this case, I just put a WOD after PT. In essence, use the PT sessions like a thourough warm-up. With so much volume, you end up going 80-90% over several events, rather than 90-100% for one event. This may or may not be acceptable to you, depends on your goals. Given your parameters, it may help you deal with the volume and go to the gym once a day rather than two.
Man I gotta switch to the airforce if pt is only mandatory M-W-F xD
