    6 PAX posted at 0530 for the APFT and 13 were on Station for an old school, simple Roman beatdown, including Camo who made an uncamoed cameo from Katy, which was awesome.

  • The inspiration for today’s workout came to YHC from a comment on exercise made by the Roman philosopher Seneca, who posted this oddly familiar backblast in 65 A.D.:

*****

On Brawn and Brains, Letter 15 from Seneca to his pupil, Lucilius, 65 A.D.:

“Now there are short and simple exercises which tire the body rapidly, and so save our time; and time is something of which we ought to keep strict account. These exercises are running, brandishing weights, and jumping, – high-jumping or broad-jumping. Select for practice any one of these, and you will find it plain and easy. But whatever you do, come back soon from body to mind.”

YHC read this learned wisdom as a chance to get back to basics, and also to get a simple Manila rope for a Tug of War Fest, Hogg Style!

Condition

Perfect. Light breeze, 65 degrees.

Thanks for letting me take the Q this am – strong work guys. I led us out with a bit of the old Latin……. carpe punctum, seize the moment. Let’s all remember how lucky we are to have the gift of health, of fellowship, and the chance to use our time to the fullest.

To end with the great badass Jocko Willink… “There is no shortcut. there is no hack. There’s only one way. So get after it.”

Get after it, gents.

– Shots Fired!
