Mosey to lower baseball field.

Burp & Merk 1 to 9 back to 1

15 second mosey to bleachers

Tibatta: Dips x 8
Tibatta: Imperial Squat Walkers x 8

mosey to main football field

X’s & O’s for 2 minutes

25 degrees with the sunrise feels a lot warmer than 12 degrees in the dark. Shovel flags think so too.

TClaps to Conspiracy, Lug Nut & Johnsonville for making it to half of our workout after attending the first 6am Saturday workout in Richmond.

YHC learned what YHC stands for.

Lug Nut was not bare-legged. #awkward

YHC increased the Burp & Merck by 1 since the last time it was attempted. Next time we’ll go to 10.

Johnsonville appreciated the intensity of the final 18 minutes so much that his lower body rested (stopped responding?) during the X’s & O’s.

Chum Bucket wants to incorporate a tower climb into a future GridIron workout, but Wilson thinks we should get approval from his wife first.

  1. Nice job fellas, and TClaps for JVille, Conspiracy, and Lug Nut! I sense that there may need to be some competition between the two Saturday workouts.

  2. Wilson’s wife said climb at your own risk, but for Wilson’s next Q she is putting together a killer workout!
