Are those basketball players on a soccer field?

Are those basketball players on a soccer field?

The Naked Moleskin:

It was a great day in the gloom.  About half way through the workout, the PAX thought they were being stalked by an anonymous red coupe idling at the locked gate to the fields.  The concern grew as 20 more cars piled into the parking lot.  As the newcomers filed onto the field, the speculation continued.  Maybe they were lacross players? Maybe football? Soccer? Market Timer offered basketball as an option.  In the end, they were either soccer or baseball players.  I swear I saw a baseball bat.  Looks like we are not the only ones who know how nice this facility is. 

Welcome to The Worm for his first visit to Foxhole.  It is good to have you brother.  Make sure Mic Check follows through and joins us next week!

Mighty Mite showed us how a 45 lb bell is swung.  Strong brother!

Thanks all for joining the PAX this morning and humoring YHC with lower reps / better form and the Tutorial-o-rama session.  As TR mentioned last week, taking it slow and focusing on form will pay dividends and will allow some serious beat-downs to occur injury free in the coming weeks. 

Market Timer on Q next week.  Come prepared!

It pains me to miss the new KB workout in Area 51. You can count on me and my 7LB bell to be there in the future.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
