For five weeks we’ve brought some creativity to “Big Mo”. Sledge Hammers, Tractor Tires, Sand Bags, 2×4 Deadlifts, Battle Rope, and Metal 8″ Pipes. It’s truly amazing what our Q’s have prepared. This morning was more basic. An example of HEAVY work with Coupons, Plates, Rucks, and Kettlebells. These exercises can be performed at any location. Even though I was more of an observer, it was an Ass-Kicker!

I can’t express enough the importance of listening to your body and making slow, controlled motions during our HEAVY WO’s. Use comfortable weight and modify as soon as you feel the need.

Circles, Grass Grabbers. (While stretching I explained the pain that I had planned)
