Worlds Worst Merkin Wednesday

Posted on

On Saturday, I took my daughter to Sunnyside, and learned about the worlds worst merkin, and immediately knew it was in play today.  Conveniently it followed Sweatervest’s Merkin Monday workout.  16 PAX arrived out of the gloom, some from EC, some straight from the fartsack and we got started.

Welcome to Spring?

Posted on

The vernal equinox has passed and it’s finally spring.  Spring means the end of bone chilling temperatures and the threat of snow.  At least that’s how it’s supposed to happen down here in North Carolina. Instead, the forecast was calling for snow, and another day with temperatures in the 30’s.  Can’t wait to dust off […]

WWRD? (What Would Riggs Do?)

Posted on

8 PAX removed themselves from the FS for a circular session of sandbag and KB-swinging EC.  1 minute of work, rotating through various exercises (5 reps each) followed by 30 seconds of rest (which was often skipped and replaced with more work).   30 minutes flies by when you’re having fun – and listening to Toolbox’s […]
