😈This year we introduced some less commonly seen movements in competitions. Movements such as db thrusters, devil press, overhead lunges.
.
πŸ€ΈπŸΌβ€β™€οΈIn 2019 we plan on doing the same, more variety, more complex movements, more movements to expose weakness and holes in an athletes training.
.
⚠️Consider this your warning, add dumbbells, kettlebells and any odd object into your training you can and you'l be grateful come event day.

πŸ‘‡Comment below a slightly less common movement you'd like to see either in qualifiers or the final .
