The Thang

YHC asked each Pax to name an exercise, some with coupons and some without, then I made the following routine:

10 Tricep Extensions
10 Merkins
10 Curls
10 Squats
10 BBS

After each round pax ran a lap of the parking lot

Anastasia informed us he needed to leave at 6, so at 5:55 we paused for AMRAP burpees, with verbal gratitude to him.

After Anastasia left, two more rounds of the routine OYO and then one round IC.

Leader’s Message (for use at work only, DO NOT use at home):

“The attack is the key to success; the defense is merely a temporary expedient to conserve forces for an attack elsewhere or to prepare for an attack at a future date” – General Bruce Clarke
