The Thang:

AO: Bombsquad

Big Monday always needs a great beatdown, so the pressure was on to find something challenging for the beasts that come out to Bombsquad. I was racking my brain all day on Sunday and couldn’t come up with anything. So I hit up twitter for some potential inspiration. Saw a lot of posts about the #IronPAXChallenge and that got me thinking back to November of last year. It was probably my 3rd or 4th time ever posting and Vitamin D was on Q for a Saturday beatdown and he pulled out the following beatdown. All I remember is barely being able to finish the workout last year, so I was curious what I could do now with 9ish months of F3 behind me. I also figured this would be a good preview/reminder for the types of workouts the Iron PAX Challenge would consist of… so lets get to it!

10 – Burpees

When going back and reading the BBs for the Iron Pax Challenge last year, there was one consistent thing that I noticed… ERC dominated almost all of them and he didn’t disappoint today either. If we had to nominate like 3 guys to send from F3 Grandstrand to put up against some other region… ERC should be in the mix.
