Strength or Conditioning. Today YOU get to choose which you would like to really focus on. Both options still provide multiple shared benefits. However, by adding or subtracting weight we significantly increase benefits more in one area than another. Let’s play it smart and remember that we can always add or drop weight depending on how we are feeling and how we are moving! We never let ego or insecurity control our decisions during a workout. We use common sense and heart.

**Weight amounts listed are guidelines and not a requirement for succeeding or a measurement of your self-worth. They are based on general weight amounts used for specific metabolic purposes, over 12 years, and thousands of people of different abilities and experiences.
Which means - If you want to go heavy today, go heavy. As long as you have safe and proper form and you have been consistently doing our workouts for more than 3 months, carefully add weight to what is comfortable for you. Heavy = Slower= Less Reps=O.K.
Post thoughts and weights used. Love that feedback it helps so much!
