Double Down

Reminder that tomorrow is Change for Change. Bring $5 to switch up your workout.

Congrats to all the Paleo Challengers!! Remember to complete your benchmarks by tomorrow!

Today is a double strength day. Work your way down the strength rotation.

If you have extra time, work on a โ€œgoatโ€ (something you suck at).

Or try this weekโ€™s member challenge.

And if you have a few minutes, watch the video below.

    1. Have you tried band-assisted HSPU? Helps getting the shoulder endurance, with full range of motion no matter which band thickness (scale) you use.
