Program For Week of Aug 5th- Aug 11


-August Challenge: Pick one goal to focus on for the month! Some examples include: “String 5 pull-ups together.” “Add 10 lbs to your deadlift max or snatch max.” “Lose 5 lbs.” We will make some space and write these on the white board so they are front and center and we can check-in on them daily. Make sure to share your goal with at least one coach and get their feedback to make sure it is measurable and doable in a 4 week period.

Remember we want to scale weight and reps accordingly to keep the intended stimulus of the workout. If a workout is supposed to take about 15 mins then we need to choose weights and reps that will allow up to keep the intensity and intended stimulus of the workout. That is where the results will come.
