Maura's Birthday Party
How does a National Bench Press Champion Powerlifter want to celebrate her birthday? Doing all her favorite things of course! We started out the day with a bench press training session at The Press Gym.
After training we drove over to my house. We were joined by Kyle, Vicki, John Dorscher and the Friday Brothers; Aaron and Shawn. Just hanging out and eating celebration food would have been too boring for Maura, so we did a mini kettlebell workout. Maura, who is new to kettlebell training snatched the 16kg for the first time! Pretty good for a petite presser after a pyramid of single arm swings!
There was Chili and Cornbread for eats. Beer and water for drinking. Beer making to commemorate the day. Then there was Chocolate Cake for dessert! A yummy treat for everyone! What a super fun day! Happy birthday Maura!
