Thank you to all who posted your feedback and comments about the future of the Strength Focus program. After considering the feedback, I have decided that the Strength Focus program will go on hiatus for a while and 6:30 classes will return to regular Workout of the Day programming. This will be the last Strength Focus post for a while. I have immensely enjoyed coaching these classes working with everyone that participated in this little experiment. I was excited to take the program in new directions, so I am saddened that this will not happen at this time. I understand, however, that many of you have divergent goals that you want to pursue. Thank you again for participating and I am proud of the progress that everyone has made.
A few points that I want to address:
1) Heavy barbell lifts will continue to show up in the WOD, just not as freaquently of consistently.
2) Keep your notebooks going! Please don’t stop recording your workouts. I can give you more pages as needed. This can provide a way for me to help you plan and train for your goals if you want.
3) The Strength Focus program will likely show up again down the road. I see it as being a useful cycle to make available periodically. This was not my original intent, but this can be productive for anyone wanting to gain a little more strength.
4) Those interested in continuing regular and consitent strength work should definately do so. This is the way that I train and any of you are welcome to show up early on Monday or Wednesday afternoon and train with me. If you train on your own, feel free to ask me any questions you might have about lifting or programing.
Thank you again. I’ll address more specific questions in the comments.
