    Great work at 6 am today! We had a 10 people in the class giving a huge effort for the lift and the met con. You guys and gals are awesome!

    Good fun at 6am! Special props to Samantha for pushing herself on the deadlifts and front squats. Alot of you are stronger than you know. Push yourself on these heavy workouts. The worst that will happen is you’ll have to drop the weight at the end. You don’t know what you can do until you try. Also, Melissa– you should be in a textbook for lifting form.

    Looking forward to this one this afternoon!
