The Pyramid Scheme (AKA Hermie's Q Part Deux)

  • Workout Date - 09/03/2015
  • Q In Charge - Bunyan
  • The PAX - Snip-It, Dexter, Montross, White Walker, Flay, Scuba Steve, Clapper, Cataract, Aflac, Rusty, Bunyan
  • AO -

With Hermie still on the IR with a bad back, I jumped in to help out and sub Q.  Since I didn’t have a lot of time to get creative, I re-visited some of my old backblasts to get some ideas (and as Montross added, I had to go way back to find them).  The Pyramid Scheme was a good one, and it did not disappoint once again.  Only made a few modifications……..
