10 pax, a mix of familiar and unfamiliar (to YHC) faces, posted for the promised TGU-free beatdown. 1/2 the pax (5, for the division challenged) felt the workout would be insufficient and chose to prerun (Hoover, Voodoo, YHC) or preruck (Dora, Geraldo).
Disclosure – mediocre but hopefully sufficient
Leave your bells and recovery walk (#0.0) to the playground, dodging the fencing
Recovery walk back to bells in parking lot. Call for water break.
Takeout by Hoover
Well, that wasn’t too bad for a light-moderate workout. At least, that’s what YHC had planned to deliver. Something to keep the pax moving and the HR up. #missionaccomplished on the movement & HR; not so sure about the light-moderate. As always, bell selection plays a role in the level of difficulty. (YHC used a 20kg and that seemed about right – moderately hard but doable – nice puddle of sweat)
200 swings, mixed with merkins, was a solid opener. Challenging but a good warmup, with the merkin breathers. Full disclosure, YHC had planned on longer breaks as the exhaustion built and the merkins decreased but forgot when the time came. #cobains Pax did a good job of modifying as needed, dropping reps here and there or switching bells. Nice work.
The playground complex was quickly recognized by Geraldo as a variation of Cindy. Righto. Pax were encouraged to modify as needed, esp with pullups. Again, well done.
Snatches were an aggressive call, but YHC felt the pax up to it. Quick demo by Voodoo for the newer meatheads, and then we were off. Again, good modifications by the pax, mixing in bells or swings as needed, and trying different bell sizes. 100 snatches. Boom.
Thanks, as always for the opportunity to lead. It’s an honor.
