Track your progress

Let's get stronger together! We'll be doing a six-week strength program designed to improve your squat and overhead lifts. We'll work on these in classes, but you can follow and track the program yourself with this spreadsheet. Enter your weights in the yellow box, and the sheet will calculate your lifts for the program. Happy lifting!
