Max Lift Workshop – Why YOU Should Do it!

 In Blog, Dublin


Has a Coach ever asked you your numbers in class? Your 1RM, your 3RM? And you didn’t know them? Then this is for you!

Over the past 16 weeks the attendees of Perpetua’s Strength and Movement class have been hard at it. Tremendous work has been put in by all during the cycle with many members attending all three classes each week.

This cycle has been focused on four main lifts, the Front squat, Deadlift, Bench Press and Strict Press for both Base and Peak, with the Base programming having a higher emphasis on volume in order to build a solid strength foundation. We mix and match lots of accessory work into the programme to ensure we are hitting all areas. We have even included ‘Arm Day’ (arguably the most crucial) which is quickly becoming the most popular as its booked out almost every week. Summer is on the horizon…

Over the 16 weeks we have already seen people surpass their 1RM’s in all lifts and for reps! I have also lost count of how many people have got their first strict pull up! All in all it’s clear that for those who have showed up regularly and put in the work that great progress has been made.

I am also a great believer in self praise, and I feel that my Strength and Movement Hip Hop Playlist has had a big part to play in some of these great feats, but I will leave that up for debate.

Anyway to get back to the point, this Saturday Ryan and myself are going to be running a workshop where we will test either our 1RM or 3RM on the following lifts – Bench Press, Deadlift and Front Squat. We have two classes already fully booked however we have added another class due to demand. You can sign up on Zen for the workshop but make sure you open ‘All Calendars’ to find the workshop as it will not appear alongside the regular classes.

If you are on the fence about attending here are a few reasons why you should.

1) It will be fun! You will get to make lots of loud noises and maybe lift a little more weight then you thought possible.

2) Going forward it may give you a better indication of what weights you should be lifting in class.

3) For those of you who have attended the Strength classes regularly it is a great way to see how far you have progressed and for those who plan on attending regularly during the next cycle it will be your new starting point.

4) You may hit a couple of new PB’s!

Each workshop should take no longer than one hour, please be there 15 minutes before hand to ensure everything runs smoothly and you get the full briefing of how the session will play out. Wehave made a couple of slight time changes which you will see on Zen but we will send out an email on this also to all booked in.

This workshop is for everyone of all levels.
