CrossFit Roughnecks

CrossFit Roughnecks!

After Portland, I went to Houston for a customer onsite.  With my special needs for this month leading up to Nationals, I had to find a gym that would let me do custom workout.  Lucky for me, the search was easy and I found a CF gym within walking distance!  Thank you CrossFit Roughnecks!

CrossFit Stumptown

CrossFit Stumptown in Portland!

While in Portland last weekend, I dropped in at CrossFit Stumptown, which is also Catalyst's newest affiliate gym!  It was my first time at a Catalyst affiliate gym and I was impressed with my visit.

Rebuilding Back Strength

Rebuilding Back Strength

Lately, I've been doing more Olympic weightlifting at Catalyst Athletics.  One of the most common feedback I got from coaches was "set your back!"  Soon enough, it was clear that my back strength was far behind and possibly even limiting PRs.  So about a month ago, Steve put me on their 4-Week Leg Strength Block 1 cycle and holy cow, it did wonders!
