8.21 - 8.27

Nice work working during our latest week of training. We tackled some challenging metcons! We continue with some fire breathing metcons this week and continue our deadlift cycle! In 8 weeks, we will be re-testing a 1RM deadlift.(Remember, with our strength work this cycle, we are aiming to add 10-30 pounds on your deadlift over the next 4 months – follow the rep schemes as prescribed.)


Ladies, if you (or a friend) are looking for a fun challenge during the week, check out the RISE class at Unbeaten every Monday, Wednesday and Friday and 6pm ET, coaching by Coach Alex and Coach Missy. The class is growing by the week!

Quote of the Week:  “Nothing great in the world has ever been accomplished without passion.”
