Good evening CFD!
Lots of really tough workouts this week! Although I was not able to make class on Tuesday, I heard a lot of buzz about FLATLINE! I can’t wait to give that one a go. This week will be entering our fourth week of the Olympic lifting and front squat cycle! I am LOVING the opportunity to work on technique with you guys, and seeing lots and lots of improvement in keeping the bar close, and exploding out of the floor. Keep up the great work, I can’t wait until max out week!
Because we are focusing so much on the Olympic Lifts during our regular weekly programming, Coach Colin will be offering a Power Lifting class in place of Barbell on Saturday, October 1. Come check it out, and see what you think!
Beginning in October, we will be welcoming a new coach, Coach Zack to the coaching team. Stay tuned for the 411 on Zack 😉
