Hey guys! Here’s a little overview of what’s happening this week, as well as other announcements you should be aware of:
First Week of the Snatch Cycle
This week we are starting the first iteration of our new programming, and it’s a 3-week Snatch Cycle. Monday and Tuesday are VERY important, as we’ll be establishing our 1RM in a couple lifts, and we’ll be using those maxes to base our lifting percentages for the rest of the cycle.

Upper Room’s Mind/Body/Spirit Class at Exodus Elite
Starting May 9th, Exodus Elite will be partnering with Upper Room to present a 4 week Mind/Body/Spirit class. This class will have a devotional element, a nutrition element, as well as a bootcamp-style workout. This will occupy the 8pm time slot on Mon, Tue, Thu, and Fri, which means that during those 4 weeks, there will be no Open Gym or Standards classes. This is very specific class (no barbells or complex movements, shorter class time, more people per class…). More information will be available soon.
Post-WOD: 7 Minutes of Heaven
When you look at the workout in WODIFY you should start seeing 2 new sections: “Heaven-Skill” and “Heaven-Cardio”. These are 2 separate optional “out-of-class”, post-workout programs. Wanting to put in some extra work and burn some extra calories? Do the “Heaven-Cardio” Metcon (which should be completed in 7m or less). Wanting to work on skill work (and have the requisite technique & strength)? Do the “Heaven-Skill” EMOM. Both of these are on your own time, on your own clock, and out of the way of the class (we’ll be working on the logistics of this to make sure everything runs smoothly, so please have some grace in the meantime).
