Hey all –
Here’s a quick rundown of everything that went on in Bonvec Strength land last week. Happy Monday!
The Strength House Podcast – Episode 8
I guess you could call this episode of The Strength House podcast “the Beer Episode” because we talk a LOT about beer. Sure, we get to some training talk, but Greg and I dive into how we got so obsessed with craft beer, from tasting to trading to miscellaneous adventures to our favorite breweries. Once we get the train back on the rails, we discuss exercise selection to build the Big 3 lifts. Enjoy!

Exercise of the Week
Client Spotlight: Leslie
Long-tenured Strength House lifter Leslie came all the way from Kansas City to visit us in Boston this weekend, and she set 3 PR’s in the process. You rock Leslie!
Insanely proud of #thestrengthhouse athlete @sanimdeg for setting 3 big PRs during her visit to @cresseysportsperformance! Leslie was one of my first ever online lifters and it was amazing to finally meet her in person. Plus, she showed up with a suitcase full of beer and BBQ. Who does that? The best client ever, that's who. You rock Leslie! #Repost @sanimdeg with @repostapp ・・・ Not a bad two days of lifting in one of the best places and even better people. Three PRs in two days! 235 & 250 squat 335 deadlift 145 bench #bonvecstrength @bonvecstrength
