Warm afternoon in the region’s finest afternoon AO and a nice crowd of manly Pax are ready to put in some work.

Low Slow Squats x 15 IC
Let’s go!

Mosey to small soccer field where some half cinder blocks were waiting. I weighed one of these at around 25 pounds so this is below the Painlab (mainly Rudolph) mandated weight of 32 pounds but it will have to do.

40 curls (called by Slaw), 40 chest presses (called by Blart), 40 overhead presses (called by Defib), lap around the soccer field, 40 LBC’s (called by Tiger), 40 Flutter Kicks (called by Dr. Seuss), 40 American Hammers (called by Love Boat), lap around the soccer field.
Repeat 3 times.

Mosey to dog park hill.

Triple Dime
10 Merkins at the bottom, 10 IW Squats at top, 10 times. Slaw wanted to call this the Dime Bag but I think that means something else, at least that’s what Freight said when he and Digger “joined” us on the hill climbs. I’m not sure we all completed the 10 climbs before time was called. It seems that the Pax have been trained to only climb the hill 5 times and asking for 10 was too much for some. I know Defib and Seuss and Haze likely completed all ten. Sargento was EHing people at the top that were in the Dog Park. Is there a name for someone who actively searched out people to EH especially during a difficult exercise routine? Maybe it should be called Sargento-ing!

Before we moseyed back I repeated something I paraphrased from the HIM Italian Job from The Fort – Why do we do hard things? Because life is full of hard things so we need to be strong. Is it easy to be a man of integrity everywhere you go? Is it easy to be a present father? Is it easy to be a loving husband? Being a good coworker? Is it easy to help lead others through tough times? But men with their concentrica in order will thrive in hard times. That is why we do hard things to prepare us for the hard things life will throw at us!

Back to the flag just in time.
