Accessory Work
3 Rounds NFT
12 Ring Rows
12 OH PVC Lunges, each Leg
1:20 Plank

Perform the A/W with a small team.  If someone has to rest during the plank the clock stops while everyone else stays up waiting for their partner to come back in before time can start again. If your team completes the first 1:20 unbroken, add :30.

Celebrate the living legend at his house with max consumption of BBQ and Beer in one day.

“To be a warrior
is not a simple matter of wishing to be one. It is rather an endless
struggle that will go on to the very last moment of our lives. Nobody
is born a warrior
, in exactly the same way that nobody is born an average man. We make ourselves into one or the other.”
-Carlos Castaneda

Remember that we are starting at 11am and running through the 12pm class.  There is no 10am or Teaser today. Enjoy the Storm.
