Box jump and Calf Raises.  times 2

1 minute of LBC


Have to love it when we are have more people than degrees.  Not sure I have seen that before.  Well done.

The original plan was based on us having over 20 people in attendance.  Was going to split up in 5 groups for a choose your own adventure workout.  We started with 11 so it was audible time.  Will save it for next time.

@Nanny – Great line about looking the person in the eye during the dips. That rule holds true for the Ronda Rousey’s as well.

@ Iguana – Could instantly tell that you have trained in something during the RR.  Wrestling?  BJJ?  Do tell.

    @Pax – If someone would have told me 3 years ago I would be getting up to workout in 11 degree weather to workout at 5:30am I would have thought they were insane. I actually walked outside today and said to myself “not as cold as I thought it would be….”

    Thank you to all for the motivation and support.

      Impressive numbers for a good FS’ing candidate morning. Good job everyone for having the fortitude to get out there!

    More PAX than degrees… love it! Having @Iguana (BJJ trained by the way) as my partner, I can only imagine how goofy I must have looked to him while I attempted the RRs. Good Q @Charmin, definitely kept the blood moving and body warm.

      @Iguana – We have to get you on the Q list. Would love to go through some BJJ workouts.

    Well done Charmin… you even kept the #WarDaddy (i.e., me, the old guy) from freezing up. Derby, thanks for spotting me comin’ over the fence. I was pretty sure that I was going to get a face full of gravel without you. Even though I can’t keep up with you athletes, I honestly don’t think I could do anything close to what I am able to do without my F3 bro’s. Thanks for your patience and encouragement. Pressing on toward the prize…
