4.4.19 – Leg Day++

With an uncomfortably warm (44 degree!) day, three dazed and confused PAX rallied around the shovel-flag at AO Mastodon for another Thursday. None of us know how to dress for 40+ weather, and the threat of showers only made it worse. Banks confused us all by bringing a jacket that altered his usual shape, color and sound! I guess our habits are getting too predictable. The Q was so thrown that he decided to go a little bit “extra” on a number of exercises.

  • Motivators IC x7
  • Tin Soldiers IC x21
  • Imperial Walkers IC x20
