Attention General Training Stream

We'll be working on back squat and bench press strength for the coming 8 weeks. Bring your war paint on your squat and bench days and it will pay off big-time in 8 weeks when we re-test.

The plan will involve using more frequent than usual lifts with an emphasis on mastering the technique. That means more sets of fewer reps to develop technical mastery.

Pay attention to the details to make sure everything comes together on re-testing day.
