Meat and Potatoes. Again.

Twenty two men had the iron will to execute the hardest exercise of the day: the fartsack getup, x1 (or as many as it takes) OYO.

After a rote and leaden disclaimer (but a disclaimer nonetheless), partner up and mosey to the starting line for loop around church.

Peaches and Herb with your partner (and it feels so good): 10 merkins and chase the farmer.

COT

MOLESKIN

  • Another variation of the same meat and potatoes weinke: basic KB stuff and sprints.  It works every time, though.
  • Baracus bellied up the bar today by grabbing a 45 pounder.  Seems like a lot of guys are stepping up the weight recently, including quite a few 28 kg bells in our midst these days.
  • TClaps to Cottonmouth (500 swings) and Sussudio (3 miles +/-) putting in extra work at 0500.
  • Strong work by Alf, as usual (wheelhouse workout for him). Same for Bulldog and Busch, Swiss Miss, Puddin Pop and the many others flying out there.
  • Also can’t overlook Drop Thrill, who is getting better every week.  Great embodiment of stepping out of his comfort zone and moving into some very demanding workouts.  Keep it up.

ANNOUNCEMENTS

  • Get with Header and Honey Bee about helping warm up the kids for the Isabella Santos 1 mile Fun Run in Ballantyne this weekend.  We could use a few more guys in F3 shirts to lather up the kiddos.
  • Get with Champagne and Frasier about tutoring at Matthews Elementary in the near future.  Details to be released soon.

Solid beat down, I had not been out to Skunk in about a month for various reasons/excuses and getting back out there today was a Melloncamp moment… Hurt so good.

Aye!

Funny you mention Mr. Mellencamp, as his tickets are on sale this week. 🙂 Seriously looking at finally seeing him live.

Thanks TR for the kind words, thanks for the beatdowns Saturday and today.

Had to actually dress up for work today and the slacks I’ve got on are very loose, never been this loose even when they were new.

3# away from 50#. 🙂

I’m a meat & potatoes kinda guy. Liked this workout, even with median runs (mine were not sprints), as I need to incorporate some running into my diet again, just don’t get crazy on me.

More meat and potatoes will be served at Meathead this week, with side of broccoli. (you may not like it, but it’s good for you)

I was just excited to run up a hill today where I could still see the top when standing on the bottom. Looking forward to more Skunk with the BRR behind me. Great Q TR – fell right into my “short arm snatch advantage” wheel house
