each day this week, we will be finding a new 1RM for each of our lifts. classes will feel like an “open gym” format all week, with everyone working on different lifts each day. when you come in, you will warm up & start lifting. depending on how many lifts you need to get each day (if you have a new 1rm after July, you DON’T need to re-test) and how many days you are coming this week, we can make a plan for how to most effectively get all your lifts completed. after you find your maxes for the day, if there is time remaining in class, you can test some benchmark WOD’s as well!
