The BackBlast:


It was a fine brisk Morning, YHC was glad to be back in the gloom after some time off while my family and I fought the sickness.  Was joined by Bunsen and Go Blue on awesome fellowship EC ruck.  Was pleasantly surprised to see Pythagoras ruck running to catch up as we reached the half way point.

YHC went down rabbit hole recently on youtube and learned about the impressive PE program at La Sierra HS back in the 60’s and was inspired to craft a workout in the spirit of what was done there.  Shared link w/PAX on Slack showing how impressive the results of this program were.

This was a tough workout, definitely gassed me.  It was an honor and privilege to both lead and suffer along side such a great group of men
