Date: 09/21/2019

PAX: Vila, Clothespin, Sandwich, Mustang, Topless, Deep Dish, Schnitzel, Mayhem, DNF, Anny

The Thang

We have a  group assignment and a number of new faces from other AO. Standard 8″CMU dispensed from the truck and transitioned to the playground.

Iron Pax week 3
43 minute AMRAP with standard 8″ CMU

10 pullups
15 burpee coupon jump over
20 coupon curls
25 coupon squat thrusters
30 Gas Pumps (reverse crunches)

This one was a tough one. Every PAX got plenty and the 43 minutes with countdown timer and Red Hot Chili Peppers was only a minor distraction from the building fatigue and pain.


Sometimes the EH and Leave no man where you found him ethos applies to the Q. I was not particularly enthusiastic about this IronPax workout, but having the group show up and count on me, pushed me to grow and do more than I expected.  Sometimes just showing up for each other is enough.  Sometimes we need more encouragement.  Either way keep it up.

CIRCLE OF TRUST: The terminating stage of each Workout, wherein the PAX form a circle and conduct Counterama, Namerama, Announcearama and the Ball Of Man.
BALL OF MAN: Congregation of two or more men in physical contact, usually (but not exclusively) in the prayer that terminates the COT. Abbr: BOM]


We are glad to have some HIM from Hacksaw join us up North. A fine time was had by all. And this one will remind of for days to come.


Normal schedule workouts and drop in Fellowships will continue.  Keep turning up.
