Deck of Pain v2 @ #TheCastle

15 PAX arrived at #TheCastle to get better by playing the Deck of Pain.  The “deal” was simple:  Each PAX took 2 cards. Spades = Blocks; Clubs = Bricks; Hearts = Cardio; Diamonds = Abs/Quads. Reps were performed by taking the card value and adding 10.  2 Jokers were also included, and unfortunately, the Q drew one (coincidence…I think not!).  YHC apologizes for the cadence missteps – between the cards, Depeche Mode radio playing on Pandora and gasping for breath, multiple screw-ups were made, but the PAX pushed through.

Conditions – 67 and perfect

  • Butt Kicks * 15 (IC)
