The BackBlast:


A nice, brisk morning greeted the PAX. A pre-blast promised a hard workout, yet one that focused on resilience. PAX were welcomed by a downranger from Nashville. Disclaimers and introductions were made and we…


Moseyed “about” 200 m (hmmm…)*

SSH – IC x 10

String Ripper – IC x 9

Moseyed back to the shovel flag.

The Thang:

YHC introduced the HERO workout, AKA The Loredo. The workout is a timed event and involves 6 rounds (reflecting June) of :

24 x Air squats

24 x Merkins

24 x Walking Lunges

400 m run

YHC was incredibly impressed with PAX resilience and times!** Which meant we had time to mosey to the basketball court for

Suicide burpee run: freethrow (1 burpee), baseline (1 burpee), half court (2), baseline (1), far free throw (3), baseline (1), far baseline (4), baseline (1).


Low dolly IC x 10

Freddy Mercury IC x 15

American Hammers IC x 11***


Men – life is tough and throws curveballs at you. PAX showed great resiliency today during the workout. Ask God for that same resilience in life. You will persevere. You are not alone!

Naked Man Moleskin:

* PAX DEFINITELY noticed YHC dropped a cone and left it there

** YHC didn’t have anything else planned, as I thought it would take longer. PAX CRUSHED it, so YHC thought on his feet and made up some time with a crowd pleaser!

*** We were going to do 50, however Short Circuit wouldn’t stop saying 11 and YHC lost track of how many we actually did. Close to 30…maybe…
