    This is the last 1RM testing day of this cycle. It was short, only 6 weeks. Don't be surprised if you don't hit a PR, especially if you hit one 6 weeks ago. Our next strength cycle is going to be MUCH longer (12-16 weeks).


    Dues for August need to be in by the 5th (Tuesday).


    Strength: ​20 minutes to establish 1RM C&J


    Conditioning: AMRAP 16 minutes:

    -16 front rack lunges (95/65)

    -16 push press (95/65)

    -16 pull ups

    -16 T2B

    * Please protect your hands!!! This is a lot of hanging from the bar.

    Stef and I return from California tomorrow. Though, I won't be in to teach classes until Thursday. From the reports I've been getting, many people got PRs on their squats, 2000m row, and snatches. Considering this was a relatively short strength cycle, it is a good sign. Please be sure to thank Sam, Jenn, and Mike for all the extra help last week and this week! You will be testing 1RM C&J on Thursday.

     Please make sure you are doing ALL of your strength and skill work. I put the strength/skill work in the programming for a reason. If you skip it, half ass it, or don't do it all you won't be getting newer/harder skills as fast as the others who are actually doing it. Also the percentages are on lifts aren't just for show... USE them!!!


    Strength: Good mornings  8 x 4sets (keep these light since you 1 RM C&J tomorrow)


    Skill: 5 dips + ME L-hold/tuck hold on rings x 3sets (make sure to write down how long you hold on each set)



    6 rounds for time:

    -200m run

    -25ft handstand walk (3 wall walks is the MOD)

    *20 minute cap*

    Thank you again to all who help with painting the box this weekend. It looks badass!

    Sam/Jenn/Mike M. will be running this classes this evening. Stef and I will be at the viewing for Stef Grandpap.


    A) deadlift: 1 x 5sets @95%

    B) bench press: 75%/5, 85%/3, 95%/1, 101%/1 x 3sets

    * When you move to 101% your 1st set should be just slightly above your current 1RM. If you have a 1RM or 200#, then your sets would start at 205#. After the 1st set you can increase as much/little as you like. Many of you like to jump immediately to 20# over your last PR and end up failing over and over since you tired yourself out with an overly heavy attempt.
