Who Knew Meatball Had Arms?

(written by Meatball and posted on his behalf)

5 pax plus YHC came out in the gloom at #Shawshank for a Saturday morning beatdown. The weather was perfect. Some of the pax wanted to know if we were doing a lot of running and some wanted to know if we were doing a lot of upper body work. Some didn’t say anything at all and welcomed whatever was about to come their way. YHC is in need of the upper body work for the upcoming GoRuck in November, so for the ones who wanted the upper body work, today was their lucky day.

Conditions: 56 and perfect

Mosey to brick pile
Circle up for rings of fire
Everyone doing curls, first pax does 20 shoulder presses. When done with the 20 shoulder presses, he runs around the circle. When he gets back to his spot in the circle, the next pax starts. Continue until all 6 pax are done.
Next, all pax do overhead t-claps while first pax does 20 tricep extensions. When done, pax runs around circle…..This sounded like a great idea on paper, however, the pax decided to increase their number of tricep extensions and challenged each other to do more and more. Thanks Meltdown for the idea. YHC was last and must have done 100 overhead claps until it was my turn to do the tricep extensions. Then was challenged to do 41 tricep extensions. Challenge was accepted and completed.
