Circuits with rucks on make you stronger

Circuits with rucks on make you stronger

Due to a hole in scheduling, YHC grabbed the reigns and took control before this thing went sideways.  Did that scare the Pax away? Was there a bribe to post elsewhere? Did some think it was going to be an easy day?? Who knows?  3 Pax showed up and attacked this fine morning with Rucks on.

Ye Old Mole Skinny

  • Thanks for the Pax for following my lead
  • Geraldo is a beast and can pound out sets
  • Wild Turkey added to the pain and took his time on the thrusters
  • Thrusters are exhausting
  • Wild Turkey has roots from OH…ask him anything music related
  • Geraldo thinks I am cheap for having the free Pandora playing
  • Geraldo knows a lot about today’s bands
  • Wild Turkey and I are doing a 45 min stair challenge tomorrow…yuck!
  • Green Giant himself- Hoover is on the schedule for next week
  • If this workout style seems interesting, hit myself or Geraldo up and we will have a pack for you to use. Try something different and get out of your same routine…SYITG

Nice Q Cheese Curd, looks like I need to step up the weight in my ruck to increase the suck. $5 a month for no commercials are so worth it. Take the money you would’ve spent to replace your Bluetooth speaker and boom, there you go.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
