11.19 Grit

Welcome to day 1 of Grit.

This series is meant to have you develop not only physical conditioning, but the mental fortitude to push past the little voice that tries to convince you that you don’t need to finish, that you’ve done enough. We will purposely be going through training that is meant to be less than ideal, and the majority of these sessions should be done without music, without training partners, and preferably outside.

Equipment needed: Bodyweight, Single Kettlebell
