Steve’s Climb Up the Leaderboard!

Steve’s 2nd Place Performance in the Deadlift/Box Jump Couplet Days like yesterday make days like today all the more satisfying.  The same perseverance and grit Steve showed yesterday, as he clawed his way through workouts that weren’t in his wheelhouse, he showed today as his back was against the wall and he knew he had to deliver.
