This week is the start of our second testing phase of 2019! 

Week’s Preview: Week 1 of 2
Friday: Back Squat

Giving some bench support in our Sunday training with the Defined Special Olympics Powerlifting team!

A note about our testing week:
Every 4 months we have a 2 week window at Defined where we test many of your core barbell lifts, Girl/Hero WODS, and baseline CFD workouts.

If you are a new athlete at Defined use these next 2 weeks to establish and record your baseline numbers or if you have been with us for a while this is a great time to check in with your last testing results to gauge your progress.  

Recording your numbers for these next 2 weeks is extremely valuable to being accountable to your training and making sure you are growing and progressing in our program.
