While YHC grabbed his phone, JV leads the PAX with Flutters x 20 IC.
Upon YHC’s return, his favorite finishing exercise begins: one PAX calls cadence for Flutters x 10 while everyone else does leg lifts, rotate giving each PAX a turn at Flutters (this is fun with large turnouts). Done.
Welcome Salsa and Hermanos!
Several PAX have life events and situations that are being dealt with prayerfully. Doing so together is powerful.
-After seeing a social media photo of Cap’n Crunch eating pizza, YHC had a craving for pizza and Merlot. This entire workout was designed to get some Merlot out of Crunch. To his credit, he hung in there and never splashed. Keep coming back, brother!
-Spaghetti O’s 2.0, Salsa, hardly broke a sweat.
-It’s amazing how something as simple as a bandanna can transform Hardhat’s look from that of a clean cut sales guy to a lead singer for a G-n-R cover band.
-As usual, #TheYachtClub’s A/V Team rose to the occasion.
-While leading a workout meant to inflict pain, YHC was beat. In total, we covered just over 4 miles plus the exercises. Thanks for the encouragement and push!
We have an incredible thing happening here, let’s maximize the momentum. Think of three guys that you know and commit to asking them three times a week for the next three weeks. When they give you excuses (they WILL give you excuses), come to one of the guys that’s been involved for a while and we’ll help you refute their pansy-ass pushback.
It was an honor to lead, as it always is.
