Full Throttle Fitness WOW # 20:

A solid group in attendence this week. We were joined by some new faces and seasoned veterans. In keeping in touch with Rannoch Donald's Simple Strength Challenge, we kicked off the Full Throttle Fitness Class with a 100 Reps (of Kettlebells exercises that is), then we got down to the real crux of the session. Our focus? covering the main movement patterns Push, Pull, Squat, Press, Lunge, plus throwing static strength endurance in the mix to neatly garnish the class. Coach Skala stepped up to the plate with a brutal Modified Tabata finisher. Bless her.
