All moseys referenced below were executed as aggressive Moseys in preparation for IP Round 2

Mosey to the MAN Station

Split up into pairs, I went solo.  One pair will stay at the MAN station and AMRAP pull ups and true dips, swapping back and forth.

The remaining PAX will aggressively mosey the lap with core work outs done at the 3, 12 and 9 positions, 10 reps IC.  We modified this down to the 3 and 9 positions to assist with the PAX at the MAN Station.

Core exercises included LBC, Pickle Punders, Dying Cockroach, pretzel crunches, Freddy Mercury, and a couple more

Upon completion of the lap, one pair will rotate to the MAN station and repeat.  Repeat this cycle until all pairs have had a chance to AMRAP

Mosey around the back of the post office.

20 Deep Ircans on the curb; chest to the concrete

Mosey to the side of the post office

Wall sit with arm movements; total of 2 minutes

Mosey to the Inviisible Flag – 5 burpees for no flag


Push yourself.  Hard weeks make stronger men.  I have 4 Qs this week, IP round #2, and our new owners in town at work.  Hard Week.  But I will be better and stronger for it.  Push yourself to do the same

Also take time to remember 9/11 and what it means to you and remember the lives lost on that day and the subsequent conflicts that followed


Not a ton of chatter today.  I think Iron Butt hates Iron pax.  Says it changed us and made us more manly on our Qs.  he may be on to something here.  Good to see Wallflower back out for day #2.  Inspiring story and man


IP #2.  yea
