You Can Go Home Again

9 Men braved the cool weather for YHC’s return to #IronYard.  It’s been way too long, due to BRR training.  I have missed not only my #YardBros, but also a change in KB style.  Under Stretch’s expert leadership, the Yard has transformed from old school, old man, mostly stationary KB workouts to high tempo, agility and cardio workouts.  YHC is an old school, old man, but enjoyed the challenge of crafting a Q for the “New Iron Yard”.

Conditions: In the 60’s, can you believe it?

To the Chutes: Partner up. P-1 go through the chutes passing the KB over each bar. Then, go through the chutes passing the KB over, then under the bars. Then scale the wall with KB and run to stop sign and back.  P-2 does AMRAP of Rolling Get Ups #CrowdPleaser.  Flap Jack

BOM and Devo by Pondo.  Can we overcome the doubting Thomas inside us?

Moleskin: The New Iron Yard is great.  No surprise that Stretch has reinvented an old school workout in an awesome new way.  The Yard is blessed with excellent leadership and a dedicated pax that never quits. Thanks for welcoming me back with open arms.  I go way back with this AO and I really missed it.

Announcements: HDHH, Thursday Lunch. MudRun Sign Ups continue. PaperCut is the AOQ for GritIron 5:30 at Woodland Park for some more KB’s and agility.  Phillipians book study lead by PaperCut on Tuesdays at 6 and 7 at Eastminster Pres.
