I'm hoping to build some strength this summer. Got a baseline today on two lifts, press and deadlift. I got 68.5# on the press (pre-baby max was 70#) and 175# on the deadlift (pre-baby max was 205#). Those have always been my two worst lifts, but my goal is just to get back to where I was. You can work on strength, but you can't force it! I'll make sure I'm doing as many lifting WODs as I can, and substitute the strength class for the Oly class once in a while. I wish I could do an actual strength program like I did two years ago, but there's not a way to do that now. So I'll just go with a strength bias this summer and see how it goes.
