Treadmill Does One-Arm-Merkins at Turning Point

10 Pax ventured into the muggy gloom for YHC’s guest Q at Turning Point. Great work by all. Way to make a statement in the hot, thick mess. Treadmill had to actually wring out his shorts in addition to his shirt. BTW, they have guys who actually run to the AO from home and back… #automatictripledown #impressive

So… in case anyone was interested, Treadmill can do one-armed merkins. Inspiring. In fact, I now commit, as often as I remember it, when I have the privilege to Q a workout that Treadmill is participating in, to have him inspire the pax with his one-armed merkins… EL SOLO. Thanks for the inspiration Amigo!
