PAX:  Christmas (Lloyd from NC), Woodchuck, Zamboni, Darius, Cosmo (Q)

5 Brothers posted in the Gloom for a brick-carrying workout with a few new exercises (title inspired by the Q breaking his brick on the ground 1/2 through the workout).  Excited to see Darius back in rhythm following the new baby.  Also excited to have Christmas with us in town and driving from Greenwood for the workout (decked out in F3 gear).  Workout exceeded expectations with the new exercises and positions that were introduced.  Mumble chatter was decent throughout and Christmas stated that he definitely got his money’s worth.  No one seem especially keen on the new low reach core position, which means there’s a weak spot there for us…so we’ll keep working on it.  Also learned that delaying the count during core exercises is generally a good way to inspire mumble chatter!

Always a privilege,
