A short week at RD doesn't mean members were short of accomplishments. This week we saw a lot of effort, overhead work and swing progressions on the fitness side. RD published our Mexican Stuffed Pepper recipe and we gave you guys strategies for meal prep heading into the new year. Here's a recap!
Watch: Last Week's Achievements
RD members are always the focal point of our weekly recap, but it's important to acknowledge two RD Coaches who are bringing the heat as well.
Coach Violet and Coach Rob have been on long roads towards their respective goals. On Monday, Violet did get-ups with a 12k for the first time. This is the goal weight for her StrongFirst Kettlebell certification coming up at the end of January.
Coach Rob is working on pressing half body weight. Getting the 44k (97lbs) overhead is no small feat. It means even more when he's been working at it for months. This week, he pressed the 40k (88lbs) for 2 reps on each side.
Members were on an overhead kick as well with Beth pressing an 18k for the first time and Sarah pressing double 16k bells. Meanwhile, Shannon pressed for the first time and Sue snatched a 12k. Also, congrats to Kathy and Harriet for their progression in kettlebell swinging and to Chris for swinging the 32k for the first time!
Great work everyone!
