Pinch hitter Q and running low on creative energy meant QIC needed ideas for a BW (body weight) WO. Week 0 of IPC looked challenging enough. So, that decided it. Set some ‘80’s rock on a PL, then, it was time to grab some gloves and get started.


Overhead arm circles, Sun gods, hill billys, windmills, calf stretches, michael phelps, copperhead Merkins, copperhead squats. All IC except for sun gods, oh arm circles. Rep count of 15.

QIC asked PAX to share some positive moments from their week thus far and were challenged to be encouragers among their families , neighbors and coworkers. Prayers said for those battling illness and for anything too private to share aloud.

Naked-Man Moleskin:

Be an encourager! Offer some words of encouragement, or, just practice good listening for someone who needs to vent. Sprocket out.
