Disclaimer: This is a free, volunteer, peer-led workout. I am not a professional. I have no knowledge of any injuries or fitness considerations. It is each person’s responsibility to be safe and modify exercises if you need to. The most important thing is that you don’t get hurt, and that you finish. Remember, the workout should be you vs you.

FALSE FINISH – YHC thought to himself as we were heading back to the AO…We have plenty of time left, let’s make these men complete one more round. So, the PAX headed back up the stairs and then down to the AO.

    Quotes from Jocko:

    “I’m not saying 0430 is for everyone. But if your sleeping until 10 every day, get used to losing.”

    “Most things that never get done never get done because they never get started.”

As always, its a pleasure,
