Strength class: a success!

Not a picture from tonight, but the idea is the same
Jordan's Strength and Power class had a great turn out last night. If you've ever wanted a dedicated strength program (without all that pesky cardio), this is an awesomely simple and effective program. I did the workout yesterday and I'm really feeling it today. For me it's nice to have someone doing the programming - It's always hard to program for yourself because you tend to skip the stuff you need but don't like.

This week we're easing into the program. If you don't have a max on a lift that shows up, you get to work up to a heavy single that day. You can join in at any time. Or if you want, you can wait until the next cycle begins at the end of the month.
