PAX were to do 100 step ups (right leg up, left leg up, right leg down, left leg down = 1 rep) on the ledge. Upon completion, do 8 burpees and 18 LBC’s because….today was 8/18. Pick up the 6 when done.

-Close with 1.5 minutes of Mary

Naked Man Moleskin…
YHC’s just felt so helpless watching the scene unfold in Afghanistan and hearing the stories already coming in about persecution of the Afghan Christians (which had actually had the 2nd fastest rate of people converted to Christianity over the past few years). YHC also has read too many statements on social media from soldiers who served there previously wondering about the what, the why, etc. Therefore YHC wanted to do a workout that honored them while also giving the PAX some time to think about the situation and offer up some prayers if desired. Doing 100 setups in a set for multiple sets gives some time for the mind to dwell on this.
The 6th man was Gracie (could not find him in the dropdown above. Is he on slack?). YHC felt safe and secure from any ill-willed folk with 2 blackbelts (Gracie and Wax-on) in attendance today. Prayers include the situation in Afghanistan, patience for the PAX, and some praises for answered prayers.
YHC has never Q’d the Clinic, but it still felt like home since YHC has Q’d WoodstockRucks at this location many times. The Clinic PAX work hard and are a tightknit crew that make everyone feel welcome. YHC looks forward to visiting again soon!
