Turning Point deemed “not Gauntlet worthy”….Do what Ranger?

YHC’s first Q at Turning Point today.  Was really looking forward to visiting and working out with this group.  TClaps to Treadmill and this group for pushing thru times of low turnout and forming a tight knit group with one solid AO for all kinds of Fitness fun.  I encourage all to visit and lead this group.  Solid dudes.

22 PAX got up on a Memorial Day weekend Saturday to find a 52 degree morning at Turning Point embracing them.  Could not beat conditions this morning.

Disclaimer

PAX were asked to push themselves toward the end of this workout in honor of all the Veterans out there who gave their lives for this great country we live in.

Split into groups of three–groups lined up behind their logs on track field.  Each group was challenged to flip their log to the other end of the field.  Winning team got to pick working out with two bricks or a block for next exercise.  Team 2 led by a motivated Hopper edged out YHC’s Team 1.

Team two got to pick their choice of pain next as the PAX lined up for some brick and block work in honor of PYT’s F3 Nation famous shoulder explosion workout.
