Legion Does Work, Early and Often

6 Men appeared in the gloom ready and willing to work this morning at Legion. These guys took everything thrown at them in this workout, and despite the difficulty passed with flying colors. They conquered some serious Ladders and Circuits, did quite a few squats, merkins, pull-ups, etc. – and survived a Battle shoulder circuit from the depths of Hell. Not to overstate the workout though…

Moleskin:
– We are learning collectively around F3 Columbia (YHC included) that it’s not so much about the volume of what you do, it’s the quality and structure of the work done. Great job getting in some manly reps this morning. YHC had fun with ya’ll.
