Christmas Shoulder SAG

AO: Badapple

NOTE: This was submitted under ShortCircuit, as he was my co-captain. And F3 site has a glitch not allowing my PAX name. ShortCurcuit was a big part of the evolution of this workout anyhow.

For the record: This is Santa Clause.

On to the preamble. It was such a coincidental brilliant streak of luck to have run into the BadApple F3ers that fateful morning when all the planets aligned. Literally, my neighbor, ShortCircuit and I were working out at Sweet Apple specifically because that was the best place to see the 5 planets in alignment that morning. A Solar System parade. Since then, F3 has been an important part of our life. Prior to that, my neighbor and I worked out every morning, same time, for about 2 years. We named ourselves SAG (saddlebrook athletic gang). And we had grown from a group of 2 to a group of 2 during those years. Imagine our surprise when we ran into a bunch of other guys dumb enough to workout at the same time. It was amazing! For my fist VC, i thought it appropriate to bring back some of that ole SAG nostalgic glory. The Shoulder SAG was one of the particularly more painful workouts that we did. I was great to be given the opportunity to share it with our new friends. Big props to TheBurn and Sprocket for guiding me along in F3. And big prop to Short Circuit for co captaining with me and for being supportive for the last 2 years. A great support system and great friends.
