Circuit of Pain

Weather Conditions: 40° & extra gloomy

It was a glorious, extra gloomy morning as 9 pax came together full of vigor and excitement for whatever was in store for bootcamp.  Since the relocation of the beloved block pile, YHC has not attempted to bring back the popular Circuit of Pain.  The plan this morning was to change that with some necessary modifications to accommodate the new space.  The ever popular Ziploc bags detailing exercises to be completed also made a long awaited return and the stage was set for low risk instructional blunders and work to be done.  Enough about the lead up, as for the workout, here is how it went:

DEVO: Positivity

Being positive doesn’t mean you ignore reality.  It means you maintain hope, optimism, and faith in order to create a better reality.
Pessimists do not change the world!  Complainers complain about problems but don’t solve them.  Critics write words but they don’t write the future.  Throughout history it’s the positive leaders who make the greatest impact.
Being positive won’t guarantee you’ll succeed, but being negative will guarantee you won’t.
