This test would normally have been done the last week of June, but some people were away on vacation.
Here’s what will be tested for each person (who has been with us for at least three months)
for a one rep max:

bench press


strongman log “ground-to-overhead”

back squat

hang power clean

note: new people will establish a safe baseline for each lift as a starting point for future tests
