    What a mighty workout that is. No doubt will have a special place in Coach DB’s heart.

    Travis knocking out the front squat! This guy is always putting in the extra work after the wod to get stronger and faster.

    It is too bad he probably won’t see this since he is in Nashville going to the Guns N Roses concert.
