F3 PowderKeg Welcome & Disclaimer:

GOOD MORNING! I’m Gluten and you are posting at a FREE peer-led boot camp style work out of F3NATION. WELCOME! I’m not a professional. If you are new, none of us are liable for what happens to you TODAY. Modify as necessary. I don’t want you to get hurt on my Q. That might be a bit embarrassing to some who come to realize a 54 year-old grandfather was somehow indirectly responsible for you hurting yourself. However, we leave no man behind! I’m a Registered Dietitian… in health care foodservice at a psychiatric facility. That may give you a little method into Gluten’s madness this morning for our little warm-up. So, are you ready?

I. The “Plate 108” Warm Up SPECIAL: …think of it as a foretaste of an Eight Course Meal, of sorts! I know you’re anxious, but be patient. This is just the first course. Hope you enjoy.

WOW, that first course just kept growing with each installment.

We’ll grab a coupon and circle up for our second course. On your six for this next exercise, #aQuakerOriginal that somehow manages to combine Heels2Heaven with chest press with coupon of your choice.
