This morning was one of YHC’s routine monthly Qs at his home AO #BombSquad (BS).  The BS AO is a no frills, lets get some work done type experience.  Sure we have our fair share of #mumblechatter and YHC/QIC has made some deep friendships from this location, but we come here to put in some quality 1st F.  Today was no different other than QIC tweeted out the evening prior that we’d have a “hard stop” of 6:10 allowing our PAX to get home and be the #HIM helping get their 2.0s off to their first day of school (often controlled chaos at YHC’s home).  Moreover, YHC indicated that the workout was a “you vs. you” WOD (written out on QIC’s newest companion to his bucket — a mobile grease board) again allowing PAX to complete and depart early today if necessary.  To QIC’s delight, 14 #HIM responded with 4 DR from various AOs!

Warm Up:

IC 15 – 20 reps. of SSHs, TTTs, and Imperial Walkers.

OYO 10 slow Dive-bomber Merkins.

NMMS: Honor to Q and support BS!  This morning’s workout was tough; especially the 4th set.  However, the PAX turned into blue face paint William Wallace and grinded out their last set — well done!

NMMS2: YHC/”stone” met with his “blade” later in the day for lunch to launch our year long Whetstone journey — this is going to be a ride!



“Run and you’ll live — at least a while. And dying in your beds many years from now, would you be willing to trade all the days from this day to that for one chance, just one chance to come back here and tell our enemies that they may take our lives, but they’ll never take our freedom!” (William Wallace/1995 Braveheart played by Mel Gibson)
