Let me start with a couple of announcements!
Pre-order shirts are in! If you didn't get an order in, we printed a handful of these t-shirts that will be up for sale behind the desk.

I would like to congratulate and thank Danny Reeder and Coach Kannon for representing us at WODsomniac. While they had to withdraw due to injury, I appreciate the hard work and dedication that goes into competing. Heal up!
Quarter 2 Dexabody Team Winners
I haven't forgotten about you! You will have a free shirt on the desk for you and I am in the process of getting your 2pood belts ordered! In order to get a wholesale price, I wanted to try and get an order together from others in the gym who might be looking for a belt. So, if you are in the market for a belt and would like a discount, please email me or message me which one you want. If I can get a handful of you to pre-order with me, I'll be able to get a deal from 2pood. Here's the site! Take a look: https://2pood.com/collections/weightlifting-belts
New Strength Cycle
Our new strength cycle starts now! Here's what we have to look forward to:
- This strength cycle focuses on the in-between lifts of Olympic Lifting. We want to develop a proper setup during the descent and transition to overhead movements during these six weeks. Athletes will work up to heavy sets as well as hitting singles within certain percentage ranges. The volume of overhead lifts and squatting will be higher than usual, so please, scale to Power or take the weight down for new athletes or need a break. Remember, days that are labeled "Work up to a Heavy" means we want to see athletes reach a top weight (within their limitations) in 5-6 working sets.
- We want to keep the lifting sessions around 20 minutes. This includes "Strength Prep" and the "Lifting session."
