Announcing “Silverback,” our first training cycle of the 2020 season.

There is no substitute for raw power. But being strong is just one piece of the puzzle. We also need to be able to use it — in our lifting, yes… but also in metcons, gymnastics, and positioning. We need strength everywhere.

Develop raw strength and put it to work.
This is our goal in “Silverback.” Building the strength to make us dangerous, and the durability to help us wield it. One the sword, the other the shield. The best warriors have both.

We’re going to increase our raw power by hammering the slow lifts–squat, deadlift, and press. We’ll increase our ability to use it through proper positioning and mobility. Moving better will lead to new PRs. And the combination of strength and durability will leave us less injury prone, so that we can train harder throughout the year.

This is our backbone–the foundation for 11 months of training.
