Circus Maximus had 6 for a Hot Potato today, including an FNG headlocked by Offshore. Fireman Ed receives credit for the coming up with the name ‘Bedpan’ (our FNG works at an Assisted Living facility.) Unfortunately, I forgot his hospital name! But he’s from Statesboro Ga, went to Wake Forest, knew Offshore before he moved here recently, his wife is from Atlanta, she’s part Lebanese, she worked at the Lebanese food festival this past weekend which apparently was a big success, he works for Beth Sholom assisted living, his children go to Godwin HS and Quioccasin MS and he lives about 1.5 miles from Godwin. They looked at a map and decided Richmond was the place to be. Not too big, not too small, just right. The Goldilocks of cities.

YHC started off with the warmup: SSHs, IWs, Don Quixote, Cherry Pickers and the Plank stretch.

Offshore took over and we split up into 2 groups of 3s for a triple check of KB swings, KB High pulls and the timer running to the end of the covered walk and back. 3X

Next, Fireman Ed had us each do a different exercise (pole smokers, KB bench press, KB swings, KB Squats, KB Lawnmowers) while the timer ran around the island. 2X

Wrapping up, Whitesnake with 11s: Sit and press and Step ups. Unlike earlier this week, no benches were destroyed on the step ups.

That used up the time.
