Moleskine: I wanted to pull out a simple old workout that tests the grip strength and hits the total body. I also didn’t want to run. I think we did both. Plenty of mumblechatter at the beginning. It seemed to taper for those that were doing the workout. Thanks for following along and not abandoning for a jog. Baracus seemed a little like he would rather be doing something else but when I offered an olive branch to wrap up the swings at 400 he snapped the branch and threw it in the fire. #highT. He said we can’t having anyone freaking out out there, we’ve got to keep our composure, we’ve come too far! So we finished the 500 swings.
Thanks for allowing me to lead boys.

Either there’s a mistake in the PAX or CR must be taking this GrowRuck training seriously.

Thanks Bananas. I can’t read my own handwriting today.

Well played sir, well played. Nothing like 500 swings to punch you in the teeth and knock you down a peg.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
