With the Regional competition finally upon us, there is sure to be an additional buzz at the gym and a perfect time for a testing week!  If this is your first testing week, the overall volume will be lower than normal, but the intensity should be much higher.  Come in and go for a Personal Record or set a baseline in our benchmark workouts and tests.  We understand that most people will not be able to attend every class, so check the weekly programming, talk to your coaches, utilize open gym times and plan accordingly.

Outside of the regular group class programming, you should attend the Venice Barbell Club if you want to test your 1 rep max olympic lifts and the Wednesday Base Camp class will include a 5k time trial for anyone interested.  Remember, we will have this again in 3 months, so be sure to write down the details of your workouts including any scaling/progressions used.
