8 brave members of the a51 tribe joined together for a celebration of the season. Lured in by strategic preblast and tweets assuring little to no running. YHC brought them all a lil gift in the form of bricks. Time to work building a foundation with bricks, sweat and some frozen fingers.

This looked good on paper, but as we began quickly became harder to do as O2 deprivation set in. YHC thought we would blast through this, but surprisingly, it took just the right amount of time. 144 push presses achieved. (smoked shoulders) Max ab work like we were in an 80’s sweating to the oldies. “hold it” might not be in my vocab for a while. (core-tastic) Promise of full body pain attained.
The pax began to feel a bit unsafe as more than a few “civilians” started rolling in and parking dangerously close to us. I assume that only our grunts and moans kept them at bay while we finished.
Thanks to Baracus for giving me the opportunity to lead Anvil. Had a blast. The lamented weinke was an auto correct on the twitters. Meant to say “Laminated”. So goes the interneting. Strong showing from Good Ride with his second post and taking up the bricks like a seasoned mason. Everyone rocked it as YHC’s creativity got the best of him yet again.
Awesome Sendoff from Young Love.
