WOD: 071708 : Going Primal On Your "You Know What!"

I saw a workout, recently, on one of my favorite websites, American Parkour. I liked what I saw; however, I wanted to add my New Warrior Training style twist to it. Thus I modified it for the use of kettlebells or dumb bells. If you do not have access to either, no worries. I listed […]

WOD: Saturday 070508
