Hey gang, Congratulations to all our athletes that hit a PR last week! There is no more room on the whiteboard so y’all better cool it, okay?
Speaking of PRs, when is the last time you PR’d at life? What happens in the gym is a metaphor for life. Here, you when attempt a new weight you either get it and or you don’t. But either way you learn and grow from the experience. Why not keep that momentum up and PR at something outside the gym? Eating healthy, speaking up for someone else, asking for a raise, insert whatever scares you right here. Go for that new weight. It won’t be perfect. But you will learn and grow.
Next Monday - Memorial Day Murph!
There is ONE CLASS at 9am. Unfortunately, we cannot accommodate earlier times. Please plan accordingly.
Please also note that it will be hot, even at 9am, and that this is a high volume workout. If the coaches have any suspicion that you are hungover or not properly hydrated we reserve the right to ask you to scale back or not participate for your own good.
We do have a surprise opportunity for everyone that comes on Monday. You don’t want to miss it.
This week is a de-load week from the heavy max lifts. Look for a couple fun partner workouts and few short intense ones before Murph next week.
If you decide to workout on Saturday make sure that you get in lots of rest on Sunday before Murph.
Everyone should be focused on staying well hydrated through out the weekend and making sure their fifth oil is dialed in!
