#TryanewAO week was underway led by TPS and Pamela albeit the latter did so in a much quieter way. With our paxhood challenged and on full display, YHC had a couple of beatdowns prepared. Of course, one for rain and one for fair weather, after all it is still Tuesday.

Viagra rolled in just in the nick of time to round us off at 9, perfect for the groups of 3 Q had planned. Without further delay (minus a few Texas-related jokes) we took off to the basketball court with a high knee mosey up the stairs to the basketball court for the start of:


  • SSH forward gain
    • SSH lateral gain (each way)
  • mosey to front of school
  • SSH x 10 IC

Station 3  – Dip n Step

50 Dips was a precursor for each rotation before doing the next set of exercises. Prepared for 5 rotations although we didn’t come close.
