15 PAX crawled into the Hogg on a lovely spring morning, hoping to catch a glimpse of our favorite omnivore.  Excitement levels were high for this rare encounter, and mumble chatter drifted on the breeze…


Nice.  60 degrees, with a fresh breeze.


YHC is not a professional. This is a free and voluntary  workout. Modify as needed. Notify the Q or rest of Pax of any serious medical conditions #PushYourselfButDontHurtYourself. Q has the cell phone.

TAP and hearty congratulations to HammerTime and Lambo on the new additions to their families.  2 F3 babies on the same day!


Not too much to share this morning….  It’s always a challenge to think up new ideas for exercises, but it’s also great fun when you have them, to test them out on the PAX in the gloom.  I appreciate the men of the Hogg for being good sports today as we tested the Angry Bear, and bared down (sorry couldn’t resist) on the second outing for the Merkin Square Bear.  I’d encourage and challenge all PAX to bring new creative ideas to WOs, but at the same time don’t forget the tried and tested – Oldies but goodies….
