We had a good crowd this morning due to the clean up efforts that Freight set up with Keep Gastonia Beautiful. As you all should know, we’ve adopted a section of Garrison near Lineberger Park. Freight started us off with a few warmed up exercises, then we split up for the egg hunt.  Painlabers each grabbed a set of bricks and riffle carried them over our heads down to the gazebo on the nature trail. Expecting some rain we set up camp there. We did a few more warm-ups with arm circles, side twists, Don Quixote’s and squats. Let’s work:

Set 1: 50s work/10s rest

crunches, American hammers, mountain climbers, big boy sit-ups, reverse crunches. R&R

Set 2: 50s work/10s rest

merkins, triceps dips, incline push-ups, overhead press, shadow boxing, Burpees. R&R

Set 3: 50s work/10s rest

curls, close grip curls, fly’s, overhead triceps ext., ext. arm curls. R&R

Mary for 5 minute, then Mosey back to base. While headed back, Bondo realizes that we went to high school together 😮. Damnit man! My memory is a shade of gray from 30 years ago, but when he told me his birth name, John Mcateer, it came back to me. 

Good work men! We did a great job cleaning up our street too. I believe we had about 10 bags of trash. Oh! and Broke found a chewing gum canister full of silver! He aint that Broke after all.


God Bless you men and hope that you all have an incredible day celebrating Easter with family & friends.
