Reminders this week…
Gratitude: Special thanks to Simon for staying after the WOD on Saturday and helping clean up the dumbbells and vacuum. It makes so much difference – and the space looks all the better for it. The challenge now is to keep the dumbbell rack looking this good for more than a day!
Mobility: We have moved all the rollers, lacrosse balls, and mats up the “mobility room”. Take some time before class to pop in and get ready to work out – or stay a little afterward – hang out, stretch and be with your gym buddies. And keep an eye out for regular mobility updates from Coach Shannon.
VS Power will mix the days up this week so as not to overlap with the regular VSX workouts.
Monday: Back Squat, Wednesday: Deadlift, Friday: Bench.

The strength work will lay the foundation for the workouts which will have everyone pressing the gas pedal to the floor the entire time! Look out for Wednesday’s benchmark workout – we’ve done this beast before, and jokingly call it the tall-person WOD – A wallball and rowing sandwich!
