Pre-Blast: (8/3/2020) Pax, the stair-Q rests with me tomorrow. Plan for a decremental stair workout. Coupons required (don’t avoid the workout because of coupons, though. I’ll have modifications if you prefer). It’ll be a grand ol time! humbly anticipating your HCs below…


5 Core Principles: Free of charge | Open to all men | Held outdoors, rain or shine, hot or cold | Led by men who participate in the workout in a rotating fashion with no training or certification necessary | End w/ a Circle of Trust

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.
