Trash talk was allegedly light this morning at Pain Lab (maybe, as I like to think, because we were too busy with werk), but mumblechatter touched on a few interesting topics.  Which PAX will be having a Pain Lab pool party as soon as his new pool is installed?  Who is each PAX’s favorite 80s/90s film star/sex symbol?  See if you can match us up:  Pamela Anderson, Cindy Crawford, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Nicole Kidman, Penelope Cruz, Carmen Electra

Linus had Gashouse Q and kicked things off with the pledge and that’s it.  No disclaimer, no warmup (one side straddle hop doesn’t count).  Fine, let’s go.  Get your coupon and head to the back of the parking lot near the picnic benches.  I got the music and timer going.  The rules were simple:  2 minutes of work on a pair of exercise, followed by 10 seconds rest, then on to the next pair – switch as often as you need to, but keep working all 2 minutes.
Merkin pull-throughs / Nolan Ryans
Overhead press / Upright rows
Derkins / Superman pull-ups
Kettlebell swings / Curls
Kettlebell pull-overs / Big-boy situps or reverse crunches
Kettlebell squats / Lawn mowers (rows)
Bulgarian split squats (left) / Star crunches
Bulgarian split squats (right) / American hammers

Rinse and repeat until time.  Midway through the first circuit there was some grumbling about “no breaks” but we pushed through to the end.  3 full cycles took us to 0759.  Rejoined bootcampers for COT.

See Gashouse BB for announcements and prayer requests.

As always, privileged to lead a fine group of HIM’s this morning!
