Beat down in the Cold

Doubfire became the proud papa of Giggles (jefflapish@yahoo.com). Well done!

Temperatures AND wind in the teens made for a keep-moving moving.

Warmup: Pax runs ~150 yards then everyone does merkins until the first guy completes 35, repeat run and merkins until first guy completes 30, repeat until 25 and so on until zero.

The Thang: Two-minute intervals of dealer’s choice. Dealer is whomever chose to wear the 40 lb vest. Dealer also gets to call out anyone with bad form to get “down” and do sit-ups or another ab substitute. Choice included: air presses, high-knees, incline merkins, log jumps, burpees, squats, lunges, wall sits, pullups, v-sits, etc.

Announcements: Pax to meet for breakfast on Saturday (12/16/17) at the Airport Dinner in Kutztown at 6:30 a.m.

Ended with circle of trust.
