March Athlete of the Month: Laura Dascal

Congratulations to Rising’s March Athlete of the Month, Laura Dascal. Over the last several months, Laura has consistently been improving in every area….from 1 rep max Olympic lifts to chest to bar pull-ups, lately it seems that there is nothing this super woman can not accomplish.  Most recently, she turned in an awesome performance on Open workout 15.4 with lots of beautifully executed handstand push-ups and multiple power cleans at 125 lbs.  However, despite these amazing feats, perhaps what I find most impressive about Laura is that she has been married to Coach Mike Dascal for a VERY long time and yet somehow still finds the strength and energy to workout every day! 😉  Get to know her story a bit better by checking out her answers below:
