Posted on

7 PAX showed up for a wet campus tour on this Presidents Day 2018 and 3 PAX for EC Pull-ups at the Bueler Trail.  YHC tried to be a good Heel by honoring our fiercest competitor and focusing on some objective truths at Duke.  For instance, Duke University has had 17 presidents to date and […]

Post-Snowstorm Hills and Steps

8 PAX assembled for EC pull ups, KB swings, and squats.  We made it through a healthy battery of all varieties of pull up pain.  We even tried some muscle ups, but that turned out to be a bad idea (shocker). Well, a bad idea unless you are Beano, but most of us are not […]

Climbing the Mountain

YHC ran a little late for EC, but was able to catch Justice before he completely left the pull-up bars. We got in 5 rounds of pull-ups, swings, and recovery before setting off for the ME. YHC is a little disappointed that Durham still does not have its own running workout (RIP Afterburn). With that […]
