Skunky McSkunkworks

8 pax decided not to go on vacation this week and swung some iron at Skunkworks.  It was a humid day, so sweating was a given and YHC kept this workout to a 0.0 to give the pax a break.  Besides, at one time Skunkworks wasn’t a running workout, right?

The Thang:

25 2-handed swings, 20 Merkins, 15 Mt Climbers, 10 low slow squats, 15 Mt Climbers, 20 Merkins, 25 2-handed swings

Moleskinny: Smoker session today.  At one point Stone Cold commented, “That’s a lot, Hoov.”  YHC thinks that was a subtle way of saying dial it back.  But we didn’t, kept the intensity going until the playlist ran out.

Box Truck made his first appearance at Skunkworks driving the clone of Tiger Rag’s jeep.  Thanks to Young Love for helping him out with form.

There was animated discussion about the state of the Charlotte Hornets and Michael Jordan’s decision-making abilities.  In YHC’s humble opinion, these guys get paid entirely too much money.

At one point a truck pulled up to the dumpsters and some guy got out to empty his truck.  No eye contact was made and all pax are reasonably sure there wasn’t a dead body dumped.

This was a substi-Q for Gerlado, who is DR this week (like the rest of Area 51).  Thanks for the chance to lead.  It was definitely a smoker, and YHC has been pumping himself full of caffeine to not crash into a coma all afternoon.

Announcements: Convergence for Area 51 at Hydra 0700 on 07/04, for Metro go to Independence Park at 0630. 

Thanks to Young Love for the takeout
