Test Week & Crush Week: What to Expect

This week marks the culmination of our 8-week training cycle and the start of “Test Week”. Over the next 5 days, we’ll be testing some strength numbers to mark your progress and to benchmark where you are at this point in time.


You can expect the following:

Monday: 1-RM or 3-RM Back Squat

Tuesday: 1-RM Snatch

Wednesday: Gymnastics Strength & Skills

Thursday: 5-RM Push Press

Friday: 1-RM Clean


During test week, there will be a WOD programmed each day, but the primary intention is keeping you fresh to hit your strength numbers; assist in recovery and keep you dialed into your movement. Don’t worry about how quickly you’re moving during the WODs; rather move with intention and focus on quality movement.


Follow test week, we enter “Crush Week”. Another full week of testing, but this week is focused on conditioning and skill rather than pure strength. You can expect workouts across various time domains utilizing the skills we’ve been focused on developing this cycle.


After crush week we enter our 8-week summer training cycle...think summer physique, bench press, abs...biceps?? More details coming soon!


We’re looking forward to celebrating your accomplishments with you over the next 2 weeks at the gym!
