Time is 8:00 so that’s a wrap.


Great effort out there this morning guys. Hands were getting very wet and cold and everyone pushed through. Good encouragement in the first half from BLC and Night Court. Everyone enjoyed the tunes provided by Baracus and there was even some singing heard. YHC tried to implement some new movements, but had to audible due to poor performance, mainly the combo lunges and one arm KB swings #don’tdowhatyoucan’tQ. Great to have Southpaw back out there and site FNG Swiss Miss. Always good to have Lab Rat the exercise scientist there to make sure correct form is followed. I think Fletch got a little impatient with YHC at one point when there was a little lull in the action and he asked “What do you have for us next Gullah?  Missed having The Hoff out there, hope that knee feels better soon brother. Contact Baracus to sign up for the BRR and we have the GRC coming up in March. Thanks to Night Court for the great prayer to take us out.

Always a pleasure to lead such a fine group of men.
