In this episode Brian and Dhani go over the workouts for the first week of a new cycle. This week focuses on lifting with tempo. This week is also a preparation week for Lions League 4.

After a run-through of the workouts Brian and Dhani review each WOD and examine the reasoning behind the programming and what each movement means to your personal fitness. At the end we break-down the Mean 17 and the new levelling system. Also, stay-tuned for a discussion on  the PRs seen last week, why we're programming tempo work, and more.
