Hey Old Cityzens!

I hope you all had an awesome weekend and are gearing up for some great workouts this week.

As mentioned in the newsletter, we’ll be focusing on squats for the next 3 months, but that includes front squats and overhead squats in addition to the every popular back squats. We’ll also be doing a bunch of unilateral work in the form of lunges, step ups, and split squats, which were featured as part of Friday’s strength work. What did you think of those?

It is getting warm outside – and inside! – even with the fans and open door, so be prepared. Yes we’re still wearing masks inside, and you all have been great at complying. If you need to catch your breath, please step outside to remove your mask. You can also grab a towel at the front of the room that we provide and use that to wipe your face (wet it down to help cool you off), and bring plenty of water. Stay hydrated before and after the workout.

We all want you to be safe and to have a great workout.

Let’s see what’s coming up this week..

Monday – Double strength day with a clean and jerk focus. We’ll hit up some glute bridges and barbell rollouts for accessory work. Butts and guts FTW.

Tuesday – Long day featuring some pushing and pulling, complements of rowing, push ups, and thrusters.

Wednesday – Front squats are featured this week along with a repeat workout of KB swings and air squats. Measurable and repeatable workouts aren’t always in the form of the benchmark girl WODs.

Thursday – Push/pull/core day with a tabata push/pull workout.

Friday – A doozy of a long workout with all the running, snatching and box jumps.

– Legs are the focus today with some weighted step ups and lunges.

Sunday – Rest Day! Relax, and we’ll see you back in the gym tomorrow!

Let’s have another great week!
