WEEK 49: Nov 28-Dec 4

One rep max week has arrived!! This week we will test our one rep maxes for the back squat, deadlift, strict overhead press, and the bench press. Make sure to record all these numbers down, as these are the numbers we will be using when calculating our percentages in future strength workouts. We will also continue working on our handstand push up, and clean techniques to further in grain these movements in our arsenal. We have one benchmark WOD this week “Cindy” on Saturday so be prepared to sweat!

WEEK 48: Nov 21-27

The strength component for this week features sets of 8 reps with lighter loads. Let’s focus on working on our technique so that we can achieve great numbers when we test our 1 rep maxes on the deadlift, back squat and the strict press next week. We have two benchmark WODs “DT” and “Kelly” with a modification of rowing instead of running for “Kelly.” We have core finishers to further develop a strong midline for injury prevention and strength in our big lifts.
