Swinging (weights) in the Rain (at Tradition)

I knew I got there a little early, but didn’t expect an empty lot. After double checking I had the right workout location for #SWAT, I mentally prepared for a solo post at a foreign AO. Fortunately, Major Payne was in town and saved the day.

1. Been to SWAT once before and had a good size group of dedicated men. So there are a few possible explanations: a) afraid of the guest Q, b) don’t like the guest Q, c) afraid of the cold and rain or d) just bad luck. I’ll go with d) as I don’t see the Tradition pax being afraid of anything and it usually takes at least a few posts to not like this Q!

2. Great catching up with Major Payne, mostly about family. He’s defintely raised a couple of very impressive young men!

Pace,

    @Gamma – thanks for making the trip to be @Maj Pain’s personal trainer. I like how you worked up to 40 KB chest presses in honor of my birthday.
