Recap 19.4 – Solcana Fitness & Wellness – Crossfit Fitness Article

Recap 19.4 – Solcana Fitness & Wellness 19.4 is over and hopefully that means we are done with burpees this open season! This workout was super fun.

Wish I Knew About Good Form When I Started Doing Calisthenics – Calisthenics Classes I wish I knew a thing or two about good form when I first began doing calisthenics.
