Strength and Power Cycle 3 Week 4

If you've been thinking about giving the strength class a try, this week is the perfect week to join in the cycle. We're on a deload week (which I, personally, really need!), so this week is perfect for new folks to test their maxes and learn how the cycle works.

For those of you who have been doing the program: I stress yet again, that you need to take deload seriously. You've been working hard the last three weeks and if you don't give your body a chance to recover, you'll burn out. Don't let your ego beat you down. These light weights are the perfect chance for you to slow down and make sure each rep is 100% perfect.
