Moleskin:

Thanks for letting me lead the pax today.  If you did your work you should be feeling that one.  Who knew you could have so much fun with not much running and no burpees!  Mumble chatter was a little heavy in round 1 but subsided greatly after the beginning of round 2 and stayed low for the remainder.  Way to grind it out boys.  I mentioned the golf tourney being on May 22nd, but we will explore pushing it back a week due to the amount of soccer tryouts participation between coaches and great dads!

Nice work Bananas. Maybe I was too focused on form with TR standing next to me, but I was on about rep 15 every time you called the next exercise.

And you just won the award of fastest to post a backblast ever. Sorry I missed this one. Had to head back to FT for a little lung pain.

That was a great Q Bananas. I could have used more snatch but will take what I can get. Now off to find some Motrin.

Great Q, Bananas. Perfect for my one year anniversary and busted knee! Good to see all the Pax as well.

Nice Q Bananas and I especially liked the 20 LBM’s you started with in warm up. Definitely not proper Merkins and that’s coming from a fellow head bobber. Well done getting through that on one knee Snakebite and hope you bounce back soon pal.

Who needs it on a t-shirt when I have the tattoo? I release all copyright claims if we decide to use it for shirts.

Bananas…I am overwhelmed with respect…even a little tear formed in my eye when reading this. Killer routine and way to move some iron around. I may borrow parts if this for Olympus! And it’s never a bad thing to get creative and leave burpees behind. Lol

Last week I complained about Hops turning Skunkworks into fast twitch, this made up for it! That was a tough kb workout!

Ok, now where did I put the Advil…

Crying for a different reason than Hoff. Knew I was in trouble before we started for 2 reasons: 1) Bananas and I talked about running on Sat. or Sun. but instead he did this morning’s workout by himself Sat. Cue for more tears from Hoff. and 2) He cut out one or more of the runs (rest for YHC) so to hit the 1000 rep #. Look forward to posting at SW again soon….after the double rotator cuff surgery. I think the 5th set of overhead presses was just 4 or 5 reps for me….kryptonite and then some.
Strong Q Bananas….thank you very little. See you at Fast Twitch soon Hair Band.

Great Q Bananas. This workout enforces if it feels easy then you need to move up KB weight. Welcome back Snakebite!

Strong one, Bananas. Although I’ve been trying to run more lately, I was counting on a low amount of running from you today, as I needed a rest, and you delivered! Loved the full body workout, and like Hops, identified overhead presses as an area of weakness. Bad day to debut a heavier bell (as if there is ever a good day…) and heard a few others with similar feelings. I also had trouble completing all the reps before moving to the next exercise, but at least, I kept my bell swinging the whole time! (except when I wasn’t…) Aye!
