Dino Gym Challenge

MEET ANNOUNCEMENT –

Dino Gym Challenge -“The Triple Deuce”

The Dino Gym Challenge has been a yearly event in the USAWA for many years now.  Each year I try to have a different theme with different lifts. No two Dino Gym Challenges have been the same.  This year it is going to be the “triple deuce”.  Three different groupings of 2 lifts, with each lift using either 2 bars, 2 dumbbells, or 2 pieces of equipment. It will be a truly all round event with pressing, deadlifting, curling, and grip strength involved.
