This week is about finishing strong! Week 2 of max out week!! Hang Squat Cleans-Tuesday, Hang Power Snatch-Wednesday and Push Jerk-Friday!
Everyone did very well last week and we are very proud of all of you for showing up daily and trusting the process. It shows and it pays off! GREAT JOB EVERYONE!!

We truly believe everyone had amazing performances! I want you to understand that 1RM gets harder and harder but as you continue through this training journey the exciting part is that your 3RM will become your 1RM and so on. For some of you, it has already happened! Look at the MEx1 pullups on the third column..We are getting more and more people Rxing pullups!!!

Strict Press

Strict Press is probably the hardest lift to PR on but everyone has been putting the work in all the pressing and different styles of push movements we have been doing. Also, something that is very exciting for me is how well most of you have been doing on your runs!!! yes!!! DEVELOP REAL SPEED haha!

Overhead Squat

We have not tested this lift in over 2 1/2 months..the reason why is that OHS can get better by a lot of different strength movements and by improving overall mobility and flexibility. But one important aspect is how STABILITY plays a huge role. We don’t do planks and weighted sit ups just for the beach bod haha.

We also had an awesome turnout for our free pull up and muscle up workshop! We had several of you get your first kipping pull up(s) and some of you on the bar muscle up! If you missed it, don’t worry we will be running another soon within a month 🙂

I really like this picture haha. If you are fairly new at RXing pull ups, congratulations!! All your workout might take longer than they used to but it is important to try and RX the workouts that have lower reps per round overall so that for your muslces, joints and ligaments get used to the load. Quality over quantity is important in all movements but definitely on pull ups when still new at the RX style. For now, continue striving and getting better everyday! This week is going to be pretty epic again! plenty of sleep and refuel your body =) LET’S GO GET SOME NEW PRs!!!
Stay Strong,
DRS Strong
