For the last several weeks a crew of 6-8 pax have held down the ruckops workout at Vets. For an hour on Tuesday night we absolutely get after some ruck PT. Immediately followed by cold beer and fellowship. Over the last couple weeks this workout has generated quite a bit of interest and mumble chatter. So naturally, last night was a record crowd for RuckOps with 12 pax showing up to check it out and see if it lived up to the hype. Disclaimer; one or two post to RuckOps on Tuesday night does not mean you will develop GUNS like Catfish and ToolTime.
