Conditions: October 1st, and we’re still swimming through the soup
Tha Thang: 8 gathered for what YHC promised was going to be the exact opposite of the Ironpax Challenge. While it was a great stretch for us and I’m glad to have done it, those workouts were painful partly because they were so mindnumbingly repetitive, with the same 5-6 exercises done over and over again. There’s definitely benefit to that, but there is also benefit to variety, and so I think I delivered that today. Not a single exercise was repeated; one set, finito! No single muscle group got ground to a pulp and we are are still walking, but we’re better overall.
That being said, a Wienke and then a backblast is hard in such circumstance, especially when you have a mind like a sieve like YHC. I perused the exicon for some new stuff, and got through all of that in about 30 minutes. Time to make some stuff up on the fly!
