This weekend was a special weekend. I witnessed one of our members, a client and a friend, crush her goal of competing in the NorCal Masters competition. She PR’d her pullups, did legit ring push ups and ran a mile with a weighted vest surpassing all her expectations. I met Karen about 4 years ago when none of this was even thought possible. I feel honored to get to be a part of her journey. I have permission to share the photos below to show just how far this amazing woman has come… and it reminds me… every now and then on our journeys to becoming better humans, it’s important to stop, turn around and celebrate just how far we’ve already come Proud of you Karen!

Spend some time before starting the WOD practicing the Sandbag Clean and a couple lunges. Figure out what is the best way for you to hold the sandbag for the lunges. If the lunges are too heavy or awkward with the sandbag and you have trouble stabilizing, use a lighter bag or use a Medball.
