A Look at Lifting


Programming for Monday, August 26, 2013

With the start of a new training week, it is a great time to assess where we are at with some of our most fundamental lifts. Many of us will be happily surprised by our own strength. Others may be reminded of a plateau they have yet to break through. In each case, use today’s workout to remind yourself of how far you have come and to set your sights on new (heavier) goals! And be sure to record your scores, weights, misses, makes, and personal reflections in your success journal!
