During our Iron 101 in Canada last weekend, we held a couple of demos during the break. Marissa (you all know her as Roo) was set to demo the long cycle for everyone. Roo will be participating in a IKFF kettlebell competition in September. We originally planned on having her enter the 35# KB division.

But after reviewing the numbers, a thought popped in my head. I started knocking around the idea of having Roo enter the 44# division and try and obtain her CMS(Canidate of Master of Sport) Rank. I told Roo the night before when we were at the bar that she would be doing the demo with the 44. This was Roos first attempt with this weight with the goal of 30 aside. She will need 45 aside in September to achieve rank. Dave from Pure Athletics post this video of the attempt. It was pretty awesome.

Get Some…
