7 men dared to swing iron in the rain at this week’s episode of Skunkworks. YHC didn’t know what was in the forecast only that rain was a remote possibility which lead Stone Cold to text YHC in the AM and request relocation to the covered pavilion. YHC was happy to oblige.
With a weak disclaimer delivered to a bunch of veterans, we headed to the covered area and got down to work.
25 2 handed swings, Merkin X 10, Peter Parker X 10, Prying Squat, 25 2 handed swings
Start in the pavilion: 50 swings, any combination, pax choice, run to the cemetery and back
Cumulative total of 50 cleans and snatches, minimum 10 snatches, run to the cemetery and back
10 Goblet squats, 10 Lanwmowers per side, 10 OH presses, waiter’s carry bell across the street switch sides and head back
rinse, repeat for 3 rounds
Mary until the end
The pax stayed together on the multiple rounds. We got three rounds of swings and cleans/snatches, which put the pax at 200 swings for the workout (including the warmup swings). It was a solid crew of veterans today and no one was deterred by the light rain, but no one complained about relocating to the covered pavilion.
Stone Cold and Horsehead have been pushing for running AND kettlebells and not running WITH kettlebells as the new(ish) site q’s for Skunkworks. I appreciate the need to shift and urge pax to follow suit.
Thanks to both of them for the opportunity to lead.

Thanks to Smokey for the take-out.
