Cock-A-Doodle-Dude My Shoulders Hurt – Rooster Back-Blast 1.7.20

Tuesdays are notable in the F3 Louisville region. We typically have our highest numbers on Tuesdays. Not sure if it is because we have a wealth of sites and workout options, because of Tank Top Tuesday, or because it’s the first day the guys from the Mutt can workout during the week. Either way, KiloContinue reading “Cock-A-Doodle-Dude My Shoulders Hurt – Rooster Back-Blast 1.7.20”

When the Rooster call, what do you do? Back Blast – 10.15.19

The Rooster is one of the most unique names for a workout, but I love the premise (or what I assume to be the premise).

9/11/19 BB – Heavy at The Mutt with Sump Pump – Never Forget
