Naked Man Moleskin:

* Hope it wasn’t the bagels and cream cheese at work :/

** Ewweeee, those bear crawls 🙁

*** Excitebike’s legs were shaking so bad YHC thought he may be having a seizure. Then he just collapsed (but eventually recovered).

**** Some PAX made it through a full 4 rounds, but YHC spotted some “baby squats” going on.

***** That was a rough one. Lots of groans.

****** No, YHC will not go past 25.
