Over the past few months, we’ve been working hard on the basics of pushing and pulling, along with building foundational strength with a barbell.

With the end of the Open upon us, once again we’ll shift back to a base-building phase to focus on the fundamentals. Over the next few months, our cycles will work on accumulating lots of solid reps with the basic barbell movements at lighter percentages. The lighter weight allows for the chance to really dial in form and recruit the appropriate muscle groups, while the higher volume will help build muscle and improve strength in the ligaments and tendons.

The last workout of the open has been announced, and as we thought, it's going to be thrusters and double-unders! Luckily, no dumbbells (phew), so we'll be using a barbell loaded with 95# and 65#. This workout is for time, and has a 40 minute time cap, but we highly, highly recommend scaling if the workout will take you over 20 minutes.
