Heavy Test Day!

How has your strength training been working for you?  Many of you have been following our first phase of the Wendler Strength cycle – both in the Strength Focus classes as well as with Comp Squad. Let's test it this week!


On the docket today are 2 essential and beastly lifts: the Overhead
Press and the Deadlift.

The overhead press (or shoulder press, or strict press, or just “press”) works the whole body, is functional, and it also feels pretty "manly" to hoist a heavy barbell above your head.
