It’s TEST WEEK so get your mind right: In the Olympic Weightlifting track you will max out a simple power + full sequence for the contested lifts, and a chance at overhead squat and front squat maxes. In Powerlifting you’ll have some opportunities to hit 1RM in any of the following: back squat, box squat, front squat, strict press, seated press, push press, bench press, sumo deadlift, and the conventional deadlift.
