Week 8, Session 2, Thursday 6:30pm class

Main focus tonight is to feel what it truly means to be back on your heals. I have been focusing on this a lot the past few months and this is once again another attempt to really hammer it in. This is going to be a knowledge packed class so please come ready to learn.

This time around I have an blog post written by Diane Fu of Fu Barbell in San Fransisco, CA. Please read and think about this in your lifting. http://fubarbell.com/content/body-likes-follow-path-least-resistance (Thanks to Patrick Bell for posting on FB)
