Back to school, back to the gym!
The Open Gym is a great place to get some extra work done before or after you’ve joined a class, or to do your own program. We encourage everybody to practice their weaknesses and enjoy their strengths.
To enjoy our gym to the fullest without limiting others we need know what we can expect from each other and understand what others expect from you.
Please stick to these simple guidelines to keep our 2nd home a happy place.
Always book your slots.
Slots can be booked per 30 minutes.
Please book all the slots you will be present, and be present on all the slots you’ve booked.
When the open gym is fully booked we can not guarantee your happiness and safety, so full means full.
Keep your personal timers muted.
We understand it’s convenient to hear your EMOM timer, but it can also be very distracting for others. If you can’t see your timer, please connect it to your headphones.
Be considerate, humble and kind.
When you set up multiple exercises, be aware that you might be blocking access to equipment you’re not using. Understand that somebody else’s workout is equally important as yours and remember that a little kindness goes a long way.

Powerlifting Programming and Event
It’s time to kick ass and chew bubblegum, ’cause the PR week had begun. Set some new Personal Records this week and enjoy 2 weeks of sexy MetCons next week. The next cycle starts August 29, will last for 11 weeks and allows you to get significantly stronger on Deadlifts, Back Squats and Bench press using the 5-3-1 Wendler system.
Instead of a PR week afterwards (Wendler does not care about your 1RM because when you can do more reps with the same weight it’s probably safer and you got stronger as well) we’re hosting our first ever Powerlifting meet. Counting down….
In the previous newsletter we mentioned we’re using the Wendler system to build our strength over the current cycle. Instead we’re using the battle tested Matsas cycle based on the sovjet training regime.
