On Aug. 30, we’re starting a 9-week powerlifting cycle. Powerlifting consists of the “big three” lifts: back squat, bench press, and deadlift. During this cycle we’ll program a little less Olympic lifting and a little more powerlifting. (Don’t worry, Olympic lifting won’t go away completely!)
The 9-week cycle will culminate with the “Powerlifting Total” on
Saturday Nov. 4 SUNDAY, NOV. 5. On that day, classes will be 90-minutes long, and we’ll increase the attendance caps so people can partner up with a lifting buddy. You’ll have 3 attempts at each lift to establish a 1 rep max. Your total will be the sum of your back squat + bench press + deadlift. (Athletes can choose whether to sumo deadlift or conventional deadlift – either counts!)
Let’s get strong, ICA!
