Get out there today!
WORKOUT OF THE DAY
Full house Saturdays are the best!
Rog pulling hard!
If you hear any one thing today, hear this: the tempo of the deadlifts in today’s strength session is more important than the weight on the bar. Seriously. It even says “moderate” instead of “heavy”. We want you to partner up today and count 5 seconds for the up followed by 5 seconds for the down. Temp lifts are great because you can’t rush through poor positioning. By being meticulous and slowing things way down, those small faults that we usually won’t notice when we’re moving quickly become really obvious. And this gives us the opportunity to correct them.
Don’t sweat the weight today. Sweat the tempo. It will be worth your while. You only have to check your ego for 12 minutes!
The happy place!

Important Weather Info!
With the storm straight up nuking right now and the latest estimate of 2 feet by mid-morning we’re going to cancel the 6am, 9am, 10am, and 11am Open Gym for today (Tuesday). We’ll make a decision around noon on the afternoon sessions.
In almost 10 years we’ve only had a couple of weather related closings and we don’t take this decision lightly, but we care about you guys and your safety and we feel like this is the right call.
Please stay tuned to our social media accounts for updates!
Today’s Back Squats!
A quick note on today’s squats. There’s 15:00 to complete 3 “working sets” of the back squat. Those are the sets that count, the ones where you say to yourself “yep, this is a tough set of 5.” As part of that 15 minutes you’ll have to build up to start your working set. Those light sets where you’re working up in weight do not count. Think of them as the buy-in to get to those three sets of 5.
The other thing for today is that once you hit that first working set, you can either stay there and keep the other 2 working sets at the same weight, or you can continue to build in weight. Whatever your decide, we want each of those 3 sets to be challenging. Pay attention to how you’re feeling as you build up and make a call. If you’re not sure, get with the coach and they’ll help you make a good decision. Squatting on Monday, starting the week off right!!
Grab a buddy and come throw down today!
