Hardest Part: Getting Out Of Bed

1

Mother nature kicked us in the groin today as 6 Pax weathered the storm for some insanity at SPEARHEAD this morning…

Mother Nature tried to take control over the routine as YHC had to audible most of the entire routine, but the SPEARHEAD crew refused to be beat.

The Thang (60lbs and 40lbs sandbag…but for some reason they got heavier when wet, lol):

Team Work – Coupons CANNOT touch ground

– 2 Large Coupons passed every 5 successful reps

2) Overhead Press x 40 (with pauses)
3) Squat Thrusts x 40 (with pauses)

Moleskin:
Check Point said it best, “just getting out of bed was the hardest part” and it couldn’t be more evident. With the horrible conditions out there, just the fact that we all dragged ourselves out of bed is a true gut check. This kind of training is what we are all about at SPEARHEAD and T-Claps to each of you who came out there today for some DownPainment!

Check Point – sorry for the last exercise…I didn’t notice you were in a puddle of 33% water so that had to be the worst Tea Bagging of all time

BLC – Hope your knee gets better. Those Ledge Climbs were a really bad idea with the conditions being what they were, however look out for them again once it dries out.

Angler – We need to change your name to War Horse or something. Is it me or is he actually getting faster and faster out there? Not sure if the Silver Bullets are ready for you but they are definitely in good hands

Liquor Cycle – Our DJ of the day! The music really helped, and I’ve got to admit, when the CD was over and there was silence there it really made me appreciate having the tunes. Also, never a time at all when you fall back or cheat on reps either. You are totally prepared to crush the full challenge…I’m actually worried to see what you are like when you get GRT…you’ll be a nightmare to the Pax for sure

 Wolfman – Your beastly name and strength is a perfect addition to the SPEARHEAD clan. Honored to have you out here with us and we are all looking forward to doing a Light or Full with you soon.
As always, it is an honor to workout with such strong, dedicated and determined individuals like you.
Respectfully,
The Hoff
