We thrive to build better people here at DRS Athletics, but what really makes people better? One of the things that we encourage athletes to do is to be fluid like water. To be receptive in order to change habits and behaviors that have led you here, but also to hold on tight to those that make you the positive person you are.

Every single person is wired different which requires a personalized blueprint. We build you from the ground up when it comes to mechanics, technique and safety. Even though we pay close attention to individual needs, we do understand the importance of strong foundations for everyone. This week has been very successful when it comes to squatting and gymnastics. We have seen great improvements on everyone in their positions and the ability to use their own body to create enough torque to lift and to move in space.

The programming this week has been focused on learning the body positions to best suit you during squatting and to continue to create a solid foundation to improve work capacity (the amount of volume, load and intensity you can withhold).

Top Scores have been battled on the ladies side. We need the fellas to bring it on!

Kolbie Nguyen is the most consistent at getting top scores and not a surprise, Ninja Tom Nguyen (dad) has been the leading guy in 3 out of 4 workouts.

Lets make this week another great one and focus on one skill at a time. Pick a goal you want to accomplish by the end of the week. Whether it's to get the kipping motion, become more efficient on burpees, or even to drop the sugar cravings you get in the afternoons. Keep striving to be better than yesterday!
