  1. Well done.

    That triple check takes a special type of torso that is still a work in progress for this hombre. Beware the derkins and the planking.

    Nice to partner with Bodo’s, Saab, Duke, and Handshake.

  2. Great Q Lockjaw! Nice mix of ground and pound with some running.

    Nice to partner with Oyster, Garbage Plate, Pavarotti and Lockjaw!

  3. Plerkins are tough, but when your 3rd man is running for 2 minutes ouch. Safe travels to those pax heading out for spring break.

  4. Great Q, Lockjaw. Shoulders: smoked. The icing on that particular cake was coming home to an excited boy who wanted to throw the baseball. Not my best stuff.

  5. My shoulders are smoked from yesterday, the Plerkin/Plank is a beast. Thanks to Upchuck, Marmaduke, Garbage Plate, and Bodo’s for partnering.

  6. For those that insist on placing your legs on the lower back of your partner during plerkins… please tell your partner that Holland Family Chiropractic opens at 9:00 am on Monday

  7. Well then, I’m sure Saab will be calling you. My fault, Saab. I was wondering why you had a grimace on your face the whole time my feet were digging into your lower back.
