Are you stronger now than you were six months ago?

Heavy carries and sprinting - some of my favorite Saturday activities. Not shown: prowler too!
I just realized that we've been doing our pre-workout strength progression for over six months. I've seen some huge changes in the regulars in my classes. If you've been consistently coming in and doing the strength work with slow progression, you should be seeing the results now too.

Many of you might be hitting the limit on your 5s and 3s. If you've reset and topped out a second time, it's probably time for a more planned periodized program than our daily progressive cycle. If that sounds like you, be sure to talk to your coach about getting a more focused program to help you get past your plateau.

We have a few more strength tests coming up, press this week, squat next week. You can use that to see the progress you've been making.
