Congratulations to all who hit new PRs during Tuesday's back squat test day! Whether it was a current era PR, all-time PR, or even a just part of the journey back to a previous level of strength before a setback, it was cool to see & hear about some of the heavy weights being moved in the gym. I even saw some PR GONG hits on the 'Gram and the 'Book (is that a thing?) which made me smile.
New strength cycles await us in the upcoming summer months, as well as some fun skill progressions both on the barbell and in the bodyweight/gymnastics domains. We're excited about filling the Arena Ready 3.0 space with some amazing workouts and look forward to the continued progress in our new digs with the same awesome people!
As for Wednesday, how about a change-up after being under that HEAVY bar and finishing with some quick hits of Tabata on Tuesday? We'll roll into a longer, more aerobic AMRAP complete with lighter loading to keep you moving and working at a more constant rate. All the fitness, and not a barbell in sight!
