Now on to today’s workout…

J/K, but I do suggest going back to yesterday’s post and reading it so you have an understanding of Testing Week.   Today we are testing your Front Squat and your Overhead Press max utilizing the same three rep-max concept as yesterday.  Again, we will wrap up the workout with an optional accessory lift and an optional short metcon.  Be advised, you’ll have three more days of testing this week and we want you to be fresh.
