Drew's Weekly Words of Wisdom
Jenni and I watched a pretty cool documentary last night. It was about the group of women who ROWED across the Pacific ocean. They rowed from San Francisco (Santa Barbara really) to Hawaii, then to Samoa, then to Australia. It took them over 200 days of rowing with so many challenges in each leg of the journey. Physically it was not "difficult". Mentally it took a toll on all the women (and families) that participated. They got out of the comfort zone big time. When was the last time you got out of your comfort zone?

It's a brand new week. We are going to test all this week. Every lift this week will be RAW, meaning not using any supportive equipment. The reason behind this is two fold. 1- we want to see where your base strength truly lies. can you squat more with a weight belt... YES, but how much? Where does your natural strength end? 2- What do we still need to work on to bullet proof your body? Supportive equipment are accessories. Kind of like supplements. You have to dial in your daily eating BEFORE supplements can really work for you. Same idea with training.
The metcons this week are all short so we can focus on the lifting. Expect 10 min for all of them this week. The workouts will still be on the whiteboard for the whole week so you can check them out.
