Feats of Strength: Defined!

The 20 x 2018 Challenge is underway, and more than 50 of you have decided to participate! While most of the items on the card are straight-forward, the Feats of Strength challenges will prove to be a bit more.... well, challenging. We are working hard in classes and Open Gym to get you ready, and in addition, we wanted to illustrate some of the movements (especially the lesser known ones... What the heck is a bent press?) so you can see what you're in for!

Deadlift Challenge:
