Our 1RM re-tests are next week!
Time flies when you're putting weight over your head. It's been almost 8 weeks since we've been in our new space, which means we're almost at the end of our strength cycle. If you have even hit half of the classes where we are working on our press, push press, or thruster, you're almost guaranteed to see an improvement in your 1RM numbers.
