This was some varsity level stuff today men. Just the IRON MILE alone was brutal. Followed up by the 6.28.05 routine made us feel like we whipped. T-Claps to Daniel Son who was amazing pushing those plates. He and Hankey are now in the running for Selection so guys if you need help, we will be glad to put together a Selection plan for you…and don’t forget Liquor Cycle who might have the fastest plate push time ever and also my want to do Selection. Somone EH him into signing up!!

Please sound off below as I have a busy day and can’t type anymore.

Again it was an honor to lead such a strong group today. You are what makes Q’ing fun!

Respectfully, The Hoff
