    We would now ruck to the kid’s cove, which was closed.

    PT Session 2
    This was dealer’s choice in F3 Grandstrand. We repeated their exercises.
    Hoser called for an overhead ruck walk with a stop at each light and an OH Ruck squat
    Lombardi had us overhead ruck back to the other side
    Rousey called for Flutters x 12 IC
    High Interest went pure legs with 7 lunges each leg
    Dreamliner called for 15 Hodors – demonstrating this full body brutality
    YHC (One Call), indicating it was still strong into beach body season, called for 10 curls of your ruck with EACH ARM!


    Off to the playground (Scully Park)

    PT Session 3 – which we will now call Crossfit Ivan

    7 minutes (5 minutes for us), 7 reps each exercise, do it all, do it with good form, do it hard, you versus you
    Merkins with ruck – regular, diamond, or wide arm – your choice and vary as desired
    BBSU’s with ruck
    Various forms of pull-ups, chin ups, side to side ups

    Rinse and repeat and keep going til time is up!


    Back to start

    Circle of Trust (COT):

    We all need to have PAX in our lives who can speak truth into our lives. Today, YHC gave explicit permission to any PAX to correct me when they see me messing something up in my life. Do not wait until I have to pay the consequences.
