2 pax posted in the swamp at chop shop. It was a morning with many bullfrogs. After the warm-a-rama we did an extreme Dora. We did increments of 25 reps for the workouts under the gazebo while the other person ran to the playground to do either 5 pull-ups, 10 dips, or 10 squats in […]

No Legs Day

It felt like 110% humidity as 7 pax gathered at Chop Shop. We focused on our upper half since my legs were out of commission. Bert was hoping to run more since his legs were still fresh after 26.2. LIFO was like a giddy school girl when he found out we were skipping leg day. […]

Warmups then took laps around the park while I made up workouts to do on or around benches. In cadence, exercise: Decline merkins, dips, step ups, incline merkins, LBC’s, Burpees. Probably some other things. […]
