Warm Up:

20 Cherry Picker with a Back Clap
20 Side Straddle Hops
10 Alternating Overhead / Seal Claps
20 Mountain Climbers


The Pax partnered up and completed collectively 100 reps of the following exercises.  One partner worked on the reps while the other partner ran to the baseball field and back.  Then they traded spots.

People’s Chair Overhead Press
Fairy Jacks
Bent Over Rows
Lion Kings
Catalina Wine Mixers
Alternating Leg Lunges
Coupon Curls
Pull Ups

This was OYO so everyone did as much as they could in the time allotted.  Most Pax made it to the LBCs.  I think I saw a few lunatics doing Pulls Ups at the end.


20 Flutter Kick
20 Starfish Crunch
20 American Hammers

Quote from Atomic Habits by James Clear:

“If you show up at the gym five days in a row, even if it’s just for two minutes – you are casting votes for your new identity. You’re not worried about getting in shape. You’re focused on becoming the type of person who doesn’t miss workouts. You’re taking the smallest action that confirms the type of person you want to be. We rarely think about change this way because everyone is consumed by the end goal. But one push-up is better than not exercising. One minute of guitar practice is better than none at all. One minute of reading is better than never picking up a book. It’s better to do less than you hoped than to do nothing at all.”

Welcome FNG S’mores.

May the 4th be with you,
