The tag line blasted on Slack for this workout was “Muscle Trauma in store @ the Foxhole.” Unafraid on eager for the DOMs that would occur…or checking off a box on the Journeyman Challenge, 7 Swole Trolls gathered for the main event including ages ranging from 8 to RESPECT status.
Warm-Up – Cue the music, no Taylor Swift or Katy Perry today.. all Rock..and Pandora commercials
The Thang – Partner up for the following:
Strong and yes, I do mean strong work by the PAX this morning as the Lions inside were awakened. It was a great morning to take advantage of temperature wise and get after it and get after it we did. The tunes are always a boost but it’s funny how when Taylor Swift pops up I get ridiculed and when no Taylor Swift pops up I still get ridiculed. That was the least ridiculable (not a word) content of the workout as my disclaimer should have been “I am not a professional, and my gear is far from professional” as the “resistance ropes” that I used are only professional kidnapping grade and the 5lb plate that was brought for Cobblers 2.0 (Gronk) was a large plate of tile. Moving on from the ridiculing and focusing on the positives from today I’ll first start with the workout before the workout. Solid pre-run effort and route laid out by Erector, really going to miss this dude moving to Tennessee. He has been a lead by example guy and a huge addition to SOB/Indian Land. Fredo may be respect status but those legs are 25, as he was the sprint burner in the group. Moving from age to beauty…from his mother of course, strong work by Gronk to defeat the fartsack and continue to lay the groundwork towards his goal of playing for some small school in Tuscaloosa one day and for Cobbler to provide the antagonizing to get him out of the fartsack and push him during the workout. Argonaut asked for pull-ups and he received pull-ups and delivered on pull-ups likely being the only one to complete all of them in strict pull-up fashion. Last but certainly not least, came as a journeyman and performed like a beast Das Boot, great work stepping out of the comfort zone and trying something different, you nailed it.
