Now that we’re looking towards the rest of 2018 here’s some of the things we’re looking at: still rings, heavy squats, the 2017 CGO retests, skills development, and mobility increases!

Note: beginning Monday 5/7 we’ll be retesting all of the 2018 CGO workouts to see how much more you can improve when you focus and have a set of movements you want to be better at! Schedule would be 18.1 that Monday, 18.2/18.2a that Friday, 18.3 the next Monday, etc.
