“Make it happen”
You have the choice to make certain things happen on your behalf. A workout, a relationship, homework, a project, etc.It is up to you if you do your part in what needs to be taken care of, the rest is out of your control.
THE FOCUS OF THE WEEK IS: MAKE IT HAPPEN!!! We continue to strengthen our mind over time. We have the choice to do it or don’t do it at all. This ties in really well with being close to “REDLINE” in a workout. If you don’t know what this means, then you need to push harder in certain workouts. Let me clarify. There is a purpose behind each workout, benchmark, lift, etc. Some days we want you to get after a certain workout and go close to redline. Some other days, the purpose of the workout is to do quality and focus on movement. Yes even during the hardest longest or fastest workout, there should be a big focus on technique and position, but at the same time, some days you just have to put up with the pain cave and DON’T STOP MOVING!!!
WHAT IS REDLINE DURING A WORKOUT? when you feel like you go numb, lightheaded, can’t barely move and you are going as hard and fast as you can. The pros of that is that you have experience a thin line between death and being alive. Haha just kidding but that is how you feel when you go that hard. The good thing about that is that your body has pushed to a limit that it doesn’t normally get to so it can now surpass it. Now, your body has experieneced that, when you become fitter, more efficient and learn to move well, your RL capacity increases and so does everything else.
No, we don’t recommend to hit it this hard every single day because your engine won’t be able to take it, but once in a while, you should push your body to those limits to understand there is always that extra push that every single person has. THIS WEEK, MAKE IT HAPPEN! We wil tell you when we want you to get after in a smart way so you push pass normal comfortable pace. Anything above comfortable pace is close to REDLINE. Anything passed what you are physically and mentally capable of doing is not REDLINE is straight up DUMB. So understand that REDLINE is pushing your limits while still being aware of technique, people around you and your own health =)

Now, lets look at some awesome numbers from last week! All, I have to say is that I am beyond proud of the consistency and hard work that every single person has put in. The ones that have been the most consistent will rise, and it shows not just in numbers, but in the movement of your lifts, the way you mentally attack the workouts and the patience you guys have to try and understand the purpose of certain workouts. That is plain awesome to experience and it spreads to everyone else in this DRS family! WOOOOH!!! If anyone has ever any question of the madness of The Chad Attack please feel free to chat it up with me =)

3RM Back Squat and “Annie”

1RM Split Jerk

800m Sprint and 100 burpees for time

1RM Clean

You all are probably thinking, what are we doing this week??? Well, one thing that fitness can be compared to is life. Sometimes you don’t know what is going to be thrown at you and you have to be ready for anything, anywhere and anyhow. You attack it headstrong and you own it!!! OWN FRAN, OWN GRACE AND ANYTHING COMING YOUR WAY ~!!!!! Couple of more weeks with benchmarks and fun workouts before new cycle =)
LET’S GO!!!!!

Stay Strong,
DRS Strong
