playing around with my y-elite class and trying to hold at least 20 second L. I've bee getting more into Calestenics and setting myself new goals that seem impossible at first but the more you practice them , the more you realize that they're very possible.
So we took a crazy hike this morning as a YMCA family. First, Nader @champ_stylo and their crew we an hour late and @celestehoffman and @ayyyyfit were an hour too early. Then hiked Old Rag which is apparently the hardest hike in VA. Not only was it 9 miles long and took almost 7 hours, but there was about a 3 mile rock scramble/boulder climb up to the top.
All in all, it was a fun new adventure and @d_reid804 got to go on his first hiking trip. He may even make it a hobby.
Ate this fantastic burger today after running around Richmond all morning and finishing a long hike. I got a turkey burger and it actually ended up tasting pretty damn good. Always good to try something new and eat a whole plate of old bay fries.
A few pics and videos from today's Y Elite games.
The squad @d_reid804 @kayoswakingup and @_slim_juan_ preparing for the deadlift/farmers walk relay. We came in third but I had the fastest leg of the day.
Also, I started the burpee quarter but definitely didn't not finish.
I tend to go through workout "phases" and change up my routine. Triathlons, Crossfit, Mt biking, home workouts, group fitness... one thing in common COMMUNITY!! My new "phase" Y-elite. It reminds me a bit of Crossfit and definately what I needed to challenge and push myself. I love the community and can't wait until next time! #yelite#jamescenterymca#lumchworkout#strong#2018goals#getmynameonleaderboard
Some great times with great people. Last week some fellow Wellness Directors and myself decided to test our mettle and try out of all the events for #YElite tier 1. Featured are Squats, Deadlift, and Bench Press.

Today, my wife won the women's division and second overall at the Richmond Y Elite games! This citywide competition of Teams of athletes from YMCA's throughout Richmond couldn't contain her! She is La Maquina! We are so proud. No lie, she was beating the guys!!! Guys came up and asked me if I was her husband and I could barely answer I had such a huge smile. #wonderwoman#yelite#chesterymca#teamlosroadies
