Steve_P_Calm_Before_WOD_2

  Some days, you just have a tough day at the office, so to speak.  Today was one of those days for Steve.  We kind of expected the first two workouts to be rough ones, since Steve’s shoulders would be smoked after the 75 overhead squats in Nancy, and he was looking at 25 handstand […]
