I hope everyone is enjoying the new toys and the start of Cycle 19 (the first of three cycles for 2019). The coaches’ intention as we move through this training cycle is to hit Box Squats once a week and to get your hands on the Ski Ergs and D-Balls at least once a week. We are going to focus heavily on building your grip strength and your ability to hang from the bar, as those are significant components of Test Week. There will be a focus on core/midline strength and stability, as well as on barbell cycling efficiency and breath – specifically using breath to brace and breathing while braced.  In addition to all of that, you can look forward to seeing different coaches leading some of the specialty classes this cycle (and the rest of this year).
