3PAX braved the not quite yet frozen precip.  Very grateful that the PAX showed up in the gloomy gloom of frigid soggy gloominess YHC had a vortex in mind that the weather dictated that we have an L-shaped vortex under the covered walkway @ #PF.   Albeit a little wet, the conditions were tolerable relative to some other posts (the 21 degree Greta comes to mind).    Anyway, we had fun, lifted heavy things many times, with much grunting and the occasional slamming down of the dumbell/kettlebells like gym meatheads (I think that was just me, sorry guys).

Enough with the chit chat.

Then grab 1 of your weights and proceed to the shoulder press @ factor of 4x the the Sammiches.  We made it from 1 to 5 Sammiches/20 presses before YHC started to tear up in front of men I respect very much.

Announcements: Drifter

Prayers: Continue to Pray for Greg Gibbons who is working hard in post stroke PT every day.   Others that YHC fails to recall and is embarrassed about it, enforcing the fact that BBs need to be written w/in 24 hrs.

Observations:  Iceman had 25# kettlebells.   They look unwieldy and harder to manage for this type of work out, and therefore now I want them.   Whisper really should get the Chinese symbol for relentless tattooed somewhere on his body.   I don’t want to know where the tattoo is going, but the term does fit the man.  Again, thanks for coming out in the almost frozen gloom men.

SYITG,

Thumper
