Gavel needed some reinforcements for Qs in July and YHC helped with the first Saturday of the second half of the year. Like I usually do, I added some trivia into my Q.
All vets, so a quick disclaimer and we were off.
Mosey down to the covered pavilion for some Corewood. We did 6 or 7 different ab exercises on my count.
We then moseyed up to First Baptist Church parking lot where there was a circuit of 11 different exercises written in the parking spaces. The pax would do the given exercise, take a lap around the parking lot, then move on to the next exercise. With the heat and humidity we were all in. a full lather at this point.
We then headed over to the old middle school for some four corners. We did dips, calf raises, lunges and leg raises. We did 10 reps, then rinse and repeat for 20 reps and again for 30 reps.
Mosey down to the track for some Dora. Merkins, LBCs and squats. That took us to time. Moseyed back to the yank.
