Pain was the Main Thang in the Rain

When: 08/29/2023

QIC: Better Call Saul

Storms in the forecast so planned for the pavilion.  Rain was actually light during the BD so we ventured out for a little cardio between rounds.

Willie Mays Hays

Michael Phelps

The Thang:

BD was a progression of exercises with most requiring the use of a dumbbell or kettlebell.

It went like this-

5 merkins then run down to the stop sign and back

5 merkins + 10 curl and press; then run

5 merkins + 10 curl and press +15 skull crushers; then run

5 merkins + 10 curl and press + 15 skull crushers +20 lawnmower/rows; then run

5 merkins + 10 curl and press + 15 skull crushers + 20 lawnmower/rows +25 squats; then run

Optional to drop first exercise from here out

add 30 LBC’s and finally add 35 calf raises.

The PAX did a great job and we finished almost exactly on time.

I said while we were out there that this must have been a good BD because the Q is absolutely miserable.


no announcements but prayers for:

Snowplow’s mom as she travels and for his brother

Seaman’s coworker is home from the hospital and recovering

DDos’ wife having some pain issues

Dunshire interview today

It was great to have Jolt at Firehouse – if I am not mistaken, it was his first time at this AO

And I know we have PR and PPR but maybe we need to have another category for F3 PAX who come to the AO to run and don’t participate in the workout.  I am looking at you Schneider.
