Powerlifter Vs. Crossfiter! Who Wins In The Battle Of The AMRAP??? *Video Included*

  Over the last several years, it's become almost a joke to point and snicker at Crossfit as a whole.

Holy Caving Knees Batman

It’s no surprise to walk into any gym at any given time, to see someone squatting more weight than they can properly handle. As a coach, I cringe walking through most gyms as I’m a freak about form and always want to give my advice and guidance to everyone that might need it.  Unfortunately, these days, when I’m not training at Iron Force Athletics, or training at my friends box’s/gyms, I’ve got my headphones on [...]
