Monday’s workout is classic CrossFit. I remember coming across this video years ago: Looked easy enough, so I gave it a try. Holy geez!!! Super tough. That tabata format really kicks your butt.

That’s not really important, except that it means I had access to baseball, basketball, soccer, and volleyball. As an incoming freshman, I really wanted to try football. So, IContinue reading “September Challenge”
As I was browsing through the depths of the internet, I came across Verge Athletics. This appears to be a couple of gyms out in Pennsylvania and also powers CrossFit Villanova at the University. I love taking a look at other gyms. Each one does things just a little bit differently, and I can usuallyContinue reading “Squat Mobility Challenge”
