Deck of Death Tour De Pitchfork

  • Workout Date - 08/02/2016
  • Q In Charge - Dr. Phil
  • The PAX - Short Barrel, Road Trip, Pine Tar, Sammy, Whisper (Respect!), Hulk Smash (Respect!), Mint Julip, My Little Brony, M.O.
  • AO -

10 PAX gathered in the gloom for a tour of #Pitchfork and a card game in hopes of avoiding the dreaded JOKER (Joe Hendricks). On one hand, the joker stayed buried, so no backward bear crawls up the hill. On the other hand, hearts came out of the deck like it was Valentine’s Day…… with no love from this crowd for the continuous burpees.

TClaps to Mint Julip for continuing to push through a calf injury and post. He could use this as an excuse to settle into the fartsack or simply workout on his own, but he understands the value of the 2nd F, so joins in and modifies as needed. Great work!!!
