What’s better than a little running mixed with strength training? Not much on a morning like today. Nice temps to break a nice sweat and get the blood flowing. Heard someone say that the farmer carry gets the heart rate up, definitely agree. That and it brings about grip failure and general fatigue. Strong work out there men. The main thing was a build up with the final round being a continuous effort to work on endurance – both running and muscular endurance. Got a few grimaces from the pax, but skunk pax always meets the challenge. Wrapped it up with a little leg work on the hill and 5 min of Mary to work on the gut/stomach/abs etc. I may have missed some goings on over in the top lot, but on our lane we had smokey and stone cold crushing the run. Hoover was making the big bell work look easy. Looked like Dollywood and bulldog were both getting after it as well. Enjoyed it fellas. Until next time…
