Eddie Van Halen. Need I say more? A legend. Recently passed away from a battle with cancer. I grew up listening and loving Van Halen. It was amazing to me what Eddie could do with a guitar and a keyboard. I felt it was fitting to pay homage to him today and create the 5150 Workout.

After the warm-up with Roscoe and the hype of Eddie already on our minds, I felt it was necessary to invite those to Pain Lab if they wished to continue the Eddie Van Halen solos during the workout. After all Roscoe discontinued the use of his speaker and Van Halen after the warmup, such a shame. 13 took the initiative to join in Pain Lab. As I look at the PAX coming into the circle of the Schiele around Frank, I thought we had an FNG. Hell nah, it was our own Woody!!! Welcome back Kotter!!! Aye. Let’s get it!

We made it through almost 4 total rounds. FWIW, my plan was to make it through almost 5 complete rounds with 14 Burpees added in to make the total of 1984 reps. Yes, 1984! Probably hands down the best VH album ever! Either way we pushed hard and all the way to 0800! Here what was on the playlist today which included some of EVH best solos:


We joined up with Bootcamp for COT.
