It’s always fun to challenge yourself, but even more fun to do so with a partner. F3 has taught me how to push myself, but even more so it has given me the opportunity to challenge myself against some intensely fit dudes, both within the Louisville Region as well as across F3 Nation. Tomorrow, CatfishContinue reading “Dos Locos @ The Loco – 12.3.19 Pre-Blast”

This will be simple (not easy) body-weight strength partner work. Bring a vest or ruck if you are feeling extra. Be careful to lean into your partner and not the reps.
