With a continuously running clock, do one pull-up and one handstand push-up the first minute, two pull-ups and two handstand push-ups the second minute, three pull-ups and three handstand push-ups the third minute… continuing as long as you are able. When you cannot complete the required number of reps for either exercise, continue only with the other as long as you are able. Use as many sets in any order each minute as needed.

Patrick and family at the Marine Corps Officer Candidate School graduation. Patrick, from all of us at Roots, we are so proud of you! See you at the shop!

Welcome Back Patrick

As many of you may know, Patrick left us early this summer for the Marine Corps Officer Candidate School and we are so very proud to announce that he graduated from the program in early August.  The Marine Corps’ Officer Candidate School in Quantico, Virginia is the gateway for men and women to become Marine Corps Officers and serve our nation.  Being selected is a triumph – making it through the 10-week program is a tremendous achievement.

Upon completion of college, Patrick will be commissioned into the Marine Corps as a Second Lieutenant.

For those of you who do not know Patrick very well, he has worked his ass off for this.

Please join the coaches in congratulating him and welcoming him back to Roots today.
