For the next few months, we will be incorporating some accessory work to go along with our usual strength and conditioning training. These accessory movements may be familiar to many of you former "gym rats," reminiscent of the bodybuilding movements you used to read about in all those crazy fitness magazines. We are adding this adjustment into our well-rounded strength programming for both the benefits of overall strength as well as aesthetics. So if you are looking to get stronger and look better in a bathing suit this summer, stick with our program along with stellar nutrition, and you will see results.

We are also playing around with adding percentages to our regular programming, to see if you like working with the numbers, rather than our usual "go as heavy as you can for today" guideline.  We will be starting a 12 week Hatch Squat cycle, along with 4 weeks of a Clean and Jerk Cycle, 4 weeks of a Snatch Cycle, and 4 weeks of the Snatch, Clean, and Jerk together.  Let us know what you think! We are always eager to hear feedback from our most valuable resource--our members!
