The few, the proud….

This small but determined crew wouldn’t let overindulgence and sloth take its grip. The holiday season won’t be making us softies! We proceeded to get an upper body pump and keep on the move.

The Thang:

Partner up: size matters somewhat but since this was a veteran crew with equal strength and speed didn’t really matter. To note; Bout Time is relatively new but can bring it for sure.

Follow me…fast mosey back up to CCH…to benches

Bench set: leg work

  • Flutter x 25 (IC)
  • LBC x 20 (IC)
  • Dolly x 20 (IC)
  • To finish it off 10 HR burpees OYO

Tally: 147 merkins (counting CDD); 65 HR burpees; 50 pull-ups; approx 1.8 miles


It was a tough morning to make it out being the day after Thanksgiving and that it was again in the mid-20s. Solid work by a veteran pax.  I hope it was worth making it out of the fartsack.  No complaining, just work by this crew.

Honor and a privilege to lead these men and at one of the best AOs. Aye!
