The Bulldog is alive, and you are missing it!

As YHC pulled into the lot, the requisite one Pax was there, but lo and behold, two more showed up… short term success! Double the number of the previous few weeks, and a perfect time to knock out a Tabata workout.

After the warmup, it was off to the Tabata races. 45 seconds of work, 15 seconds of rest, 10 different exercises, for three rounds. Between each round was a bit of core and an opportunity to carry our kettlebells around the parking lot for a bit of sightseeing.

Exercises performed were: Halos, around the worlds, goblet squats, kettlebell swings, curls, chest press, triceps extensions, calf raises, and CDDs (round 1, double calf raises round 2, and burpees round 3).

Tabata style workouts are great for keeping the Pax on time, and are easily adjusted to enhance particular goals you have in mind. It’s also great for mumble chatter since it is all AMRAP (no counting!). As November is the month of new Qs, consider Tabata at The Bulldog, Bunker, or Pain Lab and step up and Q this month.

Announcements: be on the lookout for a blood drive, don’t forget to vote next Tuesday (early voting is still going on), and Christmas Town 5K SFN needs more pushers.

Prayers: Nutria’s brother in law is reconvening from chemo, and a neighbor is fighting the flu (it’s out there, so take care), Tube’s neighbor is recovering from kidney stone laser surgery.

After the name-o-rama, Nutria took us out.

It was an honor to lead -Orangeman
