I told you that was going to be a doozy!!! From the look on some of the faces above they were getting the full dose! The workout today was to motivate everyone to come out to OSU campus Saturday September 27th as we hold the Fight Gone Bad III fund raiser which benefits the Prostate Cancer Foundation and the Wounded Warrior Project. For more information on how to take part in Fight Gone Bad III check out the Athletes for a Cure website.
…is sometimes taken for granted by some of us here at Rogue. For others the pull-up presents a challenge that, just a short time ago, was thought to be impossible. Lynn has been working on getting her pull-up since she became a Rogue athlete. Today Lynn tried very hard to get her chin above the bar. She didn’t quite make it. However with the determination and effort that she displays above. She will be rocking out pull-ups, as recommended, for the workouts in a very short time!!
Julie has been with Rogue for just a short time. However she took to the Rogue way of doing things very quickly. You could say that she is hooked. Just a couple of weeks ago Julie injured her foot playing flag football. She hurt it bad enough that she has to wear a protective boot. Julie comes into Rogue the day after she hurt herself in her boot. We assumed that she was going to request that we put her account on hold. Not this Rogue warrior! She asked us if it would be alright if she could still workout with us. Commitment. Who are we to deny anyone as determined and motivated as that. Great job Julie!
“Or wo-man!” Today’s workout included the “man-maker”. Its basically a burpee with a delightful twist, dumb bells. We had a huge turnout at the noon and 5:30 classes. When you have that many people blasting through a workout in one room the energy and the adrenaline goes through the roof!
…”Filthy” as in “Filthy Fifty” that is! The Rogue athletes started off their Labor day with a “doozy” of a workout. For many of the athletes this was their first experience with the infamous “Filthy Fifty”. Every single one of them completed the workout. One of our athletes was having a tough time with it. The coaches told him that it would be “ok” if he wanted to stop. He told us that he wanted to finish it regardless and finish he did.
It takes a certain kind of individual to come in to Rogue, day after day, to work as hard as we expect our athletes to work. Not only do our athletes do the work but they do it willingly. And they all are reaping the rewards of their efforts no doubt by becoming stronger, faster, and leaner.
Tonya just got back from the U.S. Army Airborne school recently. Yep that’s right Tonya spent the last three weeks learning how to jump from a perfectly good aircraft. Now she is back home at Rogue where she belongs!
This morning the Rogue Running Team met for its Sunday run workout. The athletes ran six 400 meter sprints. That in of itself is very challenging. But our athletes are highly motivated (or crazy) individuals. RRT members Dan, Heather, Mark, J, and Andy stayed afterwards to participate in Cara’s workout too. True Rogue warriors! To get results it takes consistency and dedication and these athletes exemplify those attributes completely!

Sunday’s all level workout was 2 person team event that involved a little strategy and teamwork. Cara linked up the teams and they were off to the races. Rowing, running, pushups and pullups. NICE JOB AMY AND KELLY FOR BRINGING IT HOME.
