AO: Lightning Rod
PAX: Ghost, Kiwi, Danish, Free Lunch, Stray Cat
58F and a bit overcast, nice and cool for a sweaty beatdown. Danish had to make a run for the Port O’ Potty but met us at the Tennis courts just in time for the Thang.

Mosie to the corner and did burpee/box jump/merkin combo’s OYO, sets of 10, 8, 6.
Mosied to the tennis court.
We paired up and while one person ran a leg of a gasser, the other would perform an exercise. Upon return, they’d switch, and the next person would run one line further on the tennis court. This continued all the way down and back for a total of 7 Gassers per exercise. Completed:
Switched it up and the ‘gasser’. became a lunge walk while partners held plank. This one was long and slow and hard and the Pax pushed to finish in time! Good form demo by Free Lunch as we all learned how to swing our opposite arm up for lunges.
We discussed the concept of ‘Queen’ and how it’s impossible to out ‘King’ it. Building good diet habits take time, and requires laying individual bricks. Free Lunch shared his concept of ‘raising the floor’, which is a great perspective to have around building habits that stick. Cheat days, setting a standard and setting up some sort of feedback loops (lb’s are easy at first) are critical as well.
Great work everyone – Walkman.
