Baylor Wilhelm: Overcome with Passion

Baylor Wilhelm: Overcome with Passion Written By Melissa Hurley How does weight pile on and how can you put your foot down to make a change? For member Baylor Wilhelm, it started with a goal – the desire to be in the Navy. Taking the traditional path right out of high school into college, Baylor thought earning a degree was the way to go.

Standard Kipping Ring Dips

Standard Kipping Ring Dips Written by Nichole Dehart In a previous article, I discussed the nuances of the butterfly ring dip. In this post we will go over the standard kipping ring dip. As stated before, I encourage people to try both styles of ring dips and play around with each one for a while to get a feel for which one flows best. For some, the butterfly ring dip simply doesn’t click and they are much more comfortable with a standard kipping ring dip.

Kevin Simons: Back in Action

Kevin Simons: Back in Action Written by Jaimie Bougie It’s not very often that a Games athlete disappears from the scene for a season or two to only reappear stronger and faster than before.
