**NOTE: If you are completing a cut or a mass on RP in conjunction with this challenge, it is highly recommended that you transition to base (maintenance) for a 1-2 month period. You should NOT be cutting or massing for longer than 12 weeks at a time. If you have specific questions, contact Coach Murph via email or text.**

We pick our strength back up this week. It will build linearly and challenge you each week. Be confident and focused with every lift.
