Moleskine:

  • Thanks to the pax that came out and supported the relaunch of the former Saturday gear site, including our illustrious Nantan, Alf. Madison and Gypsy made it 3-for-3 by posting all week. War Eagle made his second post after Monday (he must really like this workout). It was Alf and Chin Music’s first time posting since the launch of the new program. Hopefully, we’ll see more of both of them and a few more of the gear regulars in the coming days/weeks.
  • This was the same workout as Monday, but with more reps. I think most of the pax really enjoyed the feeling in their hands and forearms by the end of the farmer carries. Alf and Madison claimed that their arms had gotten a few inches longer.
  • Mighty Mite on Q at Swole on Monday at McAlpine Elementary.
