20 Men arose from the very enticing Labor day fartsack and ventured out to MCP for a little teamwork.
I drove in, with Dutch in the passenger seat, to an empty parking lot. I wondered out loud if anyone would show. Dutch assured me that if I built the workout, they would come. Well the workout was build and ready to jump off my weinke and sure enough my brothers rolled in! Including 1 FNG!
YHC gave a brief disclaimer and pointed out that every 5 minutes throughout the next hour, my watch would beep, this beep would indicate that 10 burpees were required. The grumbling was loud, the looks were mean, but the desire to get stronger pushed these men through and we got started.

Indian Run to Softball field parking lot
Some confused pax members kept asking me if I new where I was going. Little did they know I was heading to my favorite place! Marathon training has kept me away on saturday mornings for the last 10 weeks, but I have not forgotten about my beloved logs! A few wirery veterans realized where we were heading and had mischievous smiles as they watched their unsuspecting brothers realize what was about to happen!
Same teams of 4
Grab a log
At this point there were definitely some confused looks! Some guys obviously thought i was joking. To Mr Beldings dismay, I was not joking.
All exercises in cadence
10 x log shoulder press
10 x log squats
10 x log curls

We left the log yard stronger, dirtier and scarier looking than when we entered! Poor ole Dutch even took a bunch of ant bites out with him 🙁
