Strength Focused Training
The last few weeks of programming have been strength conditionin focused.  We’ve already seen many PRs and we know you’re learing a lot of new techniques.  We’ll total soon and the PRs will be ridiculas. 
We know this type of training isn’t everyone’s favorite.  But just like those who enjoy this type of training tend to hate endurance workouts, it’s the training you don’t like that you need to embrace.  We routinely program with emphasis on a single component to make your gains within that component greater in less time.  
Get comfortable being uncomfortable.

Strengthen your weaknesses and you won’t have any.

    Been a tough week. Feeling it today for sure… but learning a lot. Thanks t – and everyone else who's helped me this week. Making huge gains, and as I look back on just a few months ago, I have come so far it's unbelievable. In November, I started at nothing. Not even a box step up. Or a push up. Or a double under. Or push press with THE BAR. I couldn't even do a deadlift at 95lb (Abby… you can attest to this!!) You guys have changed my life, and my health… and that's something I will always appreciate. Love you guys.

    Noelle, In the past few weeks we've seen a great improvement in your technique on many lifts. The stretching and flexibility exercises you've been doing each day have led to increased hip mobility and flexibity. Now you're squatting correctly and seeing big numbers on your lifts. Your swim, bike, and run will all benefit. Good work.

    I signed up for the 6pm olympic lifting class, but if you get enough people who are interested in a mid morning class, I would prefer that time. 6am is just too early for me! Thanks!
