Back-Blast – Cloverfield @ The Garden – 8.13.20

I’ve slacked on the BB my last two Q’s. No excuses just let it slip my mind. I was excited to get back to The Gloom after being in quarantine due to Covid. It was a frustrating experience to say the least and I was ready to let off some steam. PAX: Husky(R) Pods NattyContinue reading “Back-Blast – Cloverfield @ The Garden – 8.13.20”

Back-Blast – Bag of Wrenches – The O – 7/14/20

This BB got away from me a little(i.e. I forgot). That doesn’t mean that I wasn’t excited to get back out to The O and lead the fine HIM that make up that group.

Back-Blast – The Cloverfield @ The Garden – 6.18.20

Workouts at The Garden have been Beastmode as of late. As a matter of fact, The Garden might be the new Beastmode. Either way, I wanted to do my part and chip in.

Pre-Blast – The Cloverfield @ The Garden – 6/18/20

Still planning the weinke but I can you tell this: It will be a high intensity, you v. you AMRAP workout. There will also be a “finisher” included in a tribute to Nice and Slow’s Q from a few weeks ago. It won’t be the same finisher but it should leave a similar effect. BringContinue reading “Pre-Blast – The Cloverfield @ The Garden – 6/18/20”

Back-Blast – The Big Kapowski @ Bayside – 1/23/20

Back-Blast – The Extender at The Mutt – 1.9.20

According to Glen Ross, today’s workout was a high 7. Initially, I thought to myself, “what a low score!”. However, after clarification from several Mutt veterans, I was assured that a high 7 was respectable and that meant Glen Ross was happy with how it went. Knowing that I passed the “test” I enjoyed theContinue reading “Back-Blast – The Extender at The Mutt – 1.9.20”

December 7th, 1941, “A date which will live in infamy”. Those were the words proclaimed by President Franklin D. Roosevelt on December 8th, 1941 as he addressed a joint session of Congress.
