Building A House of Pain One 2×10 At a Time

Workout Date:





Hottub, Flyover, Sunshine, Goldberg, Peach, El Red Cardo, Flop, Buffett, Quaker (QIC)

The Thang:

AO: BombSquad

Conditions: 65 degrees, perfect

YHC arrived at the AO early and prepared for a simple Beatdown that would focus on each body part (arm/chest, abs, legs, etc). When YHC saw Sunshine & Flyover HC on twitter the night before, I knew an all star crew would be at #BommSquad and would expect an AllStar Beatdown. First to arrive was Peach & Goldberg (still recovering from an unfortunate playground slide incident the day before at #Hasslehoff). Before parking in the Shovel Flag Lot they drove around the AO to affirm that no pallets would be utilized in the gloom. When they exited the car I let them know that I already scouted out the pallets but the one I needed (harnessed pallet) had disappeared. #happydays! Sunshine & Flyover arrived as promised #accountability. Flop  and El Red Cardo cruised in next, then Buffett toting the Shovel Flag. Final PAX to arrive was Hottub via the “SpaceShuttle”. All PAX were fired-up and ready to go!
