Well, Day 1 of PUSH week is in the books, and it was an incredible way to start off! Absolutely outstanding lifts across the board, with too many PR's to count.
It's worth mentioning that while we don't train at max weights all the time, your max lifting ability is very good. This is because we can get all the necessary strength and technique adaptations at 75-90% weights with less risk and strain than going to absolute max all the time.
Great adherence to strong technique in the deadlifts today gang and I know some of you wanted to keep going when pulled back by our coaches. I'm glad that you listened to their advice as that is what we are here for - to provide the safest possible environment for you to improve your fitness.
Great turnout today resulting in a completely empty series of weight racks during the 5pm class!
