10502239_10152148177971751_2349223709161639806_n

STRENGTH

Shoulder Press, 3-3-3 at 80-85%, 1-1-1-1 at 90-95%

Notes:  These are not 1RM attempts.  Weights should be anywhere from 90-95% of your 1RM.  If you have not been following the strength cycle or joined in late, then you should do sets of 3-5 reps (at moderate weight) instead of heavy singles, unless you are an experience lifter.  Next Monday we will be doing a CrossFit Total (max BS, DL, and SP in the same session).

ANNOUNCEMENTS

Going Away Party for Jon and Elizabeth!

Jon and Elizabeth have been integral members of the gym since the beginning, and it will be hard to see them go!  Before they leave we want to send them off in style in the only way we know best, a bar crawl! Join us for one last celebration on Saturday, July 26th as we raise a glass to say thanks for all that they have taught us and contributed to our community. RSVP to the Facebook event if you plan to join us!
