Re-test week is here!  Let’s see if the last 9 weeks have paid off for you.  If you hit each and every day, I guarantee you this week you’ll see improvements in all these lifts as well as your WOD performance! We kick things off with re-testing our Strict Press 5X5.  Just like you have done each time we did Strict Press, keep the feet planted, legs locked out, core tight and shoulders engaged.  Aim to go heavier per set than you did on 20 Oct.

Today’s mini-chipper will make you did in.  Keep a steady pace on the dubs to avoid misses, then find manageable chunks on the wall balls you can hit and take minimal rest before you start the next chunk.  When it comes to the burpees…Just. Keep. Moving.
