3 men posted to #Legion Tuesday morning, hoping for the opportunity to #GetBetter, to get stronger, and to see if they were #LegionLegit. YHC was inspired by a 2016 paver workout courtesy of Legion Counsel of Elder member Wingback, focusing primarily on the upper body and core muscles. YHC brought some F3 branded pavers to the AO and then promptly went on a month long hiatus so this was the first chance to play with our new toys. Here’s how the #LegionPaverPowerHourRedux went down.
Conditions: Clear and surprisingly not humid in the mid to high-50s. Conditions are perfect – it’s business time.
Grab pavers and head to the standard late arrival warmup spot (no late arrivals showed), taking care not to wake the folks sleeping in their car at the AO
Warmup – SSH, Windmills, Through the Tunnel (NO CLAPPING)
Warmup done – on to the real deal; grab the pavers and head to the basketball court

PAX put in great effort on this workout. YHC wanted to focus on some upper body and get some of that sweet sweet paver action and the PAX rose to the occasion. Til next month Aye!
