CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Every time 9/11 comes and goes, I am reminded of just how grateful I am for our first responders, AND I am also reminded of how it is not enough to acknowledge their sacrifice one day out of the year. Their job is literally centered around going against everyone common sense self preservation technique we have ingrained in us since birth. (When you hear gunshots, run the other way. When you see a fire, move away from it.)
This is an awesome (hopefully soon-to-be) AO. It’s a nice change of pace to get to throw some weight around, and T-Claps to the other PAX for bringing sandbags, CMUs, and dumbbells, to make sure we had enough for everyone.
I stole that arm workout straight from P90x, and it is a burner! Hits everything in your upper body. Don’t need very heavy weights, for it to be extremely effective.
There was discussion about whether this workout would be better off in the long run as Thursday or Friday morning workout. If you have any thoughts, one way or the other, Let Nature Boy know.
