Week of 4/28/2014

The programming will now be written to allow for more volume in the nightly session. We will be alternating movements and using rest intervals to finish the work. The sessions should still fit in a 90 minute window but the overall intensity of each workout should increase. Feedback is much appreciated! 

Note: I know many of you will be lifting in the TCA Meet on May 17th. We will start doing more full lifts next week and deload slightly the week before to get you guys ready.
