“Be proud of your hard work and accomplishments, but never be completely satisfied and never forget you’re not the only one out there working hard. You can always do more, do better, and help others do the same”
–Greg Everett, Owner and Head Coach of Catalyst Athletics
This supplement triggers the brain to increase the body’s natural production and transportation of testosterone, and luteinizing hormone (LH). According to recent studies, T levels in men have drastically declined over the past decade while women experiencing ovarian and other reproductive issues are on the rise. This could be due to the very flawed average American diet. D- Aspartic Acid can be used to increase muscle mass, strength, definition, and promote health of the reproductive system. Guys don’t be D-ficient… Try D-Aspartic Acid.

Monday – Muscle Up Your Monday
We’ll be spending the first class of the week honing in on the elusive ring muscle up. Our skill work at the beginning of class will set us up for the NCFIT benchmark workout “Uppercut”. We can guarantee the buy-in for this workout of 20 ring muscle-ups will set the tone for the following rounds of lateral burpees and power-cleans. If you don’t have ring muscle-ups we’ll modify to burpee pull-ups.
Tuesday – Squat Day, Week 1 (Retest)
Did you have an “off” leg day last week? That’s okay! We are retesting for our upcoming squat cycle this week! Our goal this week is to find a “technical” max. There is absolutely NO need to board the “struggle bus” attempting 5 rep max at the beginning of the cycle. We are looking to own our movements from start to finish. We will finish our 5×5 or 5×3(if coming from the floor) squat cycle with the benchmark partner workout “Tailpipe”. Each partner will alternate through static kettlebell positions while the other partner crushes short distances on the rower.
Wednesday – Pop and Drop
We will be working heavy 3 rep hang snatches, toes to bar, and hand-release pushups during an alternating 18 minute EMOM. The toes to bar will assist us in opening the hips, and allow us to build in weight across each set of hang snatches.
Thursday – 20/20
If it’s the middle of the week, and you already want to break things… Come to class and get your mid-week frustrations out on slam balls! We have 5 sets of slam balls and suitcase lunges for today’s conditioning workout. However, we will have an option for plate ground to overhead if slam balls aren’t your thing!
Friday – Box Jump Blowout
Your body will get a workout from the top, down today. You’ll view the WOD in wodify on Thursday night, and expect to have a shoulder intensive workout. However, this one will burn your legs as much as your shoulders. The name of the game in today’s conditioning piece is explosive movement and rapid hip extension. Get ready for lots of box jumps and push presses.
Saturday Community WOD
Our free workout this week is fast and furious. We have 6 sets of 2:00 minute workout segments. During these segments we will complete short running intervals, double dumbbell snatches, and a few double unders. Since the intervals are so short we suggest scaling to single unders to preserve the stimulus for this workout.
You’ll get the chance to channel your inner strongman at the beginning of class with a 1RM dumbbell snatch on each arm. Our focus is dumbbell cycling in our workout today. We have single dumbbell front squats, alternating dumbbell snatches, situps, and a very odd movement called the single dumbbell burpee! Our goal is to stick with lighter dumbbells and go mostly unbroken on this workout! Remember, you aren’t getting any gainz looking at your shoe laces! Let’s scale appropriately today!
