The mumble chatter was real today. Not a single merkin or burpee was done during this workout. I thought the Pax needed to build the muscles that are used to do merkins before the onslaught of merkins that is surely to take place in the coming weeks. Got alot of flack for the Biceps Curls but as you can clearly see they are used in diamond merkins…

“What kind of stain is on it Clothespin?”
“I bet it was ribbed for his pleasure.”
