Back Squat – build to a training max
15 weighted box jumps NFT
WOD Notes: The goal for today is to find your opening lift for the power meet. It should be around 90-95% of the lift you are hoping to hit at the meet. Work your way up and make it look good!
Reminder: The last day to sign up for the power meet and chili cook-off is Tuesday! We appreciate your cooperation as this will allow us to organize heats and ensure the event runs smoothly.
Nik’s Pep Talk: If you’re on the fence about this power meet, please give me a minute of your time… Every year we hear people hem and haw about signing up for the power meet. And I just don’t get it. If you’re free on Saturday Jan 19, sign up! I hear people say things like “I know I can’t win,” or “I already know where I stand.” Seriously?! Most athletes don’t enter power meets just to win; they enter in order to challenge themselves and, hopefully, set new personal records. Especially at ICA, the focus of the event is enjoying a fun morning with our fitfam, lifting heavy weight, and eating delicious chili. The little dose of nerves that accompanies the event is a GOOD thing – that adrenaline drives many of us to new PRs. If you have a squat, deadlift, or bench press on your goals card for 2019, you owe it to yourself to do this meet. You’ve already put in the work over the last 2 months of our strength cycle. Now’s the time to see the results! Sign up sheets are on the desk. 🙂
