6MOM PAX choice



It was YHC’s first post of the New Year and I planned on making it a good one. The KB ladder is one of my favorite KB workouts. You feel like you’ve accomplished something with you get through the 5th set, until you realize you’re not even near half way done. Mic Check suggested that I call and audible half way through, but I wasn’t backing down. It hurts…. a great kind of hurt.

The KB, merkin, LBC circuit was meant to repeatedly pound your upper body alternating between KB moves and merkins/LBCs. I don’t think I could have done any more merkins after that.

Shout out to Mic Check for introducing Foxhole to a new Mary exercise (apparently introduced to him by Strange Brew) the elbow plank while all the PAX counted down from 10. It was painful and way to long.
