Play Smarter and Harder

  It’s all about being smart. As I have gotten older I’ve taken a page out of @richfroning book and decided to work smart.  I know my limits… well at least some of them. With the state of my knees, extreme loads and depths at or below 90 degrees cause some issues. When you get a WOD or any type...
