Coach's thoughts on today:

Another push/pull combo to get y'all "strong like bull". The pulling will be made somewhat tougher by the gymnastic day 2 warm-up, but remember that is skill based and the strength work is building to a 5RM so quite a different stimulus. Bands are okay but weighted if possible, and if you are not even close to dips then consider bench dips or another modification (ask you're the coach).
After that, we are going to take an "open skill session". It would help if you came in with something in mind you know you struggle with and need some help. DO NOT just wonder around aimlessly! The Open starts at the end of the month so get on them goats!
