First part of my @ultimateninjaathlete World Finals Run. Finished 3rd in the nation in the Men's Pro Division and 1 of only 3 course completions on the tricky, pumpy Finals course. I'm very grateful to compete in something I love with other awesome, passionate ninjas!


The first third of the Level 5 course @conquerninjawarriorgyms Blaine. If you think you're a ninja beast, come out and try to beat it under the 4 min time limit!


Ninja + Parkour = ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜Ž


@minneapolisboulderingproject Obstacle Course!! Come try it out today at their Block Party ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ•บ๐Ÿง—โ€โ™‚๏ธ


Working lots of high intensity 1-2 minute courses in preparation for the fast-paced @ultimateninjaathlete World Finals in 3 weeks! #top10orbust #workyourweaknesses


Patrick Eagan Park, Eagan, MN. Natural Play Area for Kids...and Adult Kids @yoganinjagirl . Try the "Zipline Out-and-Back Challenge" and more fun stuff. Also go for a trail run there. It's a beautiful park ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿƒโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿ•บโ›ฐ๐Ÿž


Me: Rested, healthy, shirtless, not yet able to do the 2-move pegboard. @drummer_ninja : Two weeks post-injury, just getting back to training. ๐Ÿคฏ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿค”๐Ÿคจ๐Ÿคฎ


One of my favorite pastimes with outdoor bouldering is matching photos out of the Guidebook to the real-life boulders ๐Ÿ˜. Sometimes climbing those same boulders proves a little more challenging. #HardestV0ever ๐Ÿ˜‚ @escapeclimbing @midwestboulderingguidebooks


First part of my Stage 1 Run @warriorplayground . Did well enough to qualify for @ultimateninjaathlete World Finals in the Pro Division in a super talented field. Thank goodness for the 1 retry you get per course ๐Ÿ˜…. Really fun competition and always grateful for spending time with great ninja friends from all over the country! @jake.murray @thegivingninja


New obstacles in @conquerninjawarriorgyms Burnsville! Mission #1: String them all together ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜


Slowly upping the number of Pink(v6-8) Routes I've crushed @minneapolisboulderingproject! And yeah...I'm sure this is on the low end of those grades ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜….


Love the new campusboard @conquerninjawarriorgyms Woodbury. @escapeclimbing rungs and peg receivers will see a lot of blood, sweat, and ?tears? from me over the coming months ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ‘Œ ๐ŸŽฅ@drummer_ninja with the quality shaky cam nipple zoom-in at the end ๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿคฃ


Dismounted so high I still haven't come back into frame yet ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚. Lot's of technique improvement still to go on huge laches. I thought I was hot shit with an 11ft lache and @the.stallion is throwing down casual 15-footers...better believe I'm glad he's teaching me his ways ๐Ÿ˜! Thank you Sensei ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™


While visiting @skyhookninjafitness in Portland I couldn't help but notice some Minneapolis-based @escapeclimbing holds peppering the walls! Had to get some reps on these hometown-heroes during my workout there ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘


Spring has sprung ๐Ÿ‘๐ŸŒž๐Ÿ„โ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿคธโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿคพโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿง—โ€โ™€๏ธ๐ŸŽ‰!. @yoganinjagirl and I were out for a bike ride and found an official American Ninja Warrior obstacle complete with icy water underneath it ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ˜ฐ


Cannonball Hooks to Floating Monkey Bars to Elevator Climb to Devil's Steps and then do it all in reverse for good health ๐Ÿ˜… ๐Ÿคฎ


@skyhookninjafitness was gracious enough to invite @yoganinjagirl and I to play on obstacles and get a killer workout. Super fun gym and great staff!


Speed courses at Urban Warrior in Portland! Wouldn't be a complete trip if @yoganinjagirl and I didn't crush some obstacles while we're in town ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘ @conquerninjawarriorgyms
