Rain was actually light during the BD so we ventured out for a little cardio between rounds. Warm-O-Rama:SSH Imperial Walkers Willie Mays Hays Michael Phelps The Thang:BD was a progression of exercises with most requiring the use of a dumbbell or kettlebell.

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. COT: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.
