We did not have a volunteer Q for Circus Maximus this week. There was talk of a hot potato Q, but YHC (Johnsonville) seized it and would not yield to others (at least until 3 min left). This is what went down, sort-of: Rapid-fire warm-up with about everything you can imagine, including, but not limited ssh, don quiotes, cherry pickers, burpees, arm circles, etc. Elevens starting with 10 KB snatches per arm on one side of the circus maximus; run to the other side and do 1 mountain climber; continue around the circus maximus to the start. Note that the…

Staying in place, complete 10 x…
