OC Throwdown photos + Upcoming week

This past weekend was very busy but still a great weekend. I spent 3 full days at the OC Throwdown, got to watch my gf at the pageant Saturday night, and still managed to workout all 3 days.
RxAction had 8 competitors compete over the weekend and 3 of them ended up on the podium. Congratulations to Coach Mike for placing 3rd on the team competition! 
 I am tired and beat but we are back to work, getting ready for Miami this Thursday for the WODapalooza competition. RxAction has 5 athletes competing so we will be there to support them and provide media coverage throughout the weekend. Coach Mike will be competing on a team with Calvin Davis, an RxAction Athlete, and Chris Brown. They are a solid team and should be standing on the podium at the end of the weekend. 

Here is the link to the event, where they will have live streaming in case you want to watch your coach in action. He will be on "Team MarcPro".
I will be posting the times he will compete on Instagram and on this blog so that you can know exactly when to tune in. 

Here is a video clip I found from an event at the OC Throwdown. As most of you know, Kevin Ogar's Life was changed forever after an accident at this same competition last year. I would think that they would have a little more thought for athletes safety when it comes to planning and programming events. I am just glad no one got seriously injured (from what I know).
