Good crew out there this morning.  Didn’t take long to figure out that 100% humidity would be a factor.  Throw in the humidity, sweat, and 400 swings and grip strength quickly became another factor.  You can thank me when you shake someones hand this week and they think you must work out with Gorillas in the ….Gloom. Brown showed up just in time to miss the warmup which I am certain was planned.  Not to be outdone, his neighbor Chanel showed up on round 6 of the Swings and Armor Builders.  We are going to need Wabbit to post and stand between Chanel and Busch next week if you are available Wabbit.  Busch inadvertently stopped at round 11 of Swings/Armor and had to catch up, and Chanel reported an unsubstantiated claim of catching up with the PAX for the 15 rounds..#math…although Chanel’s hand is torn open so he paid!  Bulldog’s Beats by Dre Pill pushin’ the AC/DC and Motley Crue helped and it was only fitting when the three ladies jogged into the parking lot to complete their run only to hear us blaring Motley Crue’s Girls, Girls, Girls!!!  Bulldog changed the name of the song to Curls, Curls, Curls and the PAX commented that we better get our curls in while TR is tapering, they actually are an exercise TR.  GREAT JOB out there today boys and thank you for letting me lead.  I enjoyed it.

Way to bring it, Bananas. Hate that I missed it. #smartsack as I prepare for my 36 hr road trip, driving around a bunch of smelly runners. #0.0

HC for next week. Stone Cold, bring it, brother!

You can use a KB for curls, just like you can use a hammer to drive screws. It’s not the best use of the hammer but it can be done, I suppose.

And your confession is tacit admission that the battle is half-won. You curl in shame, as it should be.

SEE ALSO: tricep extensions.

Regardless or your KB curl opinion, it was certainly welcomed after the rest of the muscle banging exercises! Great job ‘Nanners!!

Looks like a good one, sorry I missed it. As the biggest meathead of all would say, “I’ll be back”… of these days.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
