  • The PAX: Hollywood, Piano Man, Feud, Toxic (Double Respect), PUD, Barker, Big Bird, LIFO, Fix It, OTC, SOC

6 Pax showed up at 6pm to Double Down. YHC had some car troubles and showed up a little late but still ran Hans Solo. 2 guys rucked for 3 miles and SOC, Big Bird and OTC put a few miles under their belt.

12 Pax arrived for ANCHOR on a seasonally cooler (but still very humid) Florida morning. YHC came armed with some new exercises … that’s what happens when you have a 2 hour flight delay from the night before.

Super proud of you guys for pushing it and working hard the entire time


  • Howling Monkeys – we started with 2 Pax at opposite ends, 10 monkey humpers, then the next person goes. 4 times around. *Penalty of 20 burpees if one side caught up to the other. Luckily for the Pax that it didn’t happen.
