The Chisel – Backblast

On a very windy morning, 12 men posted at The Point for The Chisel, a regimen designed to chip away at any soft spots we might have, using both dynamic and isometric exercises.  This was the maiden voyage for YHC as the Q.

Formation Run in Column of 2s with YHC calling cadence, 2 laps around the block.

Back to gazebo and partner up for:  Pullups x 5 with partner spot as necessary then to bench with Partner A Tricep Dips x 30 while Partner B Imperial Walkers & switch. Rinse & Repeat with Commando Pullups x 5 the second time through.

Catch breath (seriously)

Shoulder Stretch OYO, Tricep Stretch OYO, Freestyle Stretch OYO

Sorry I cannot remember the announcements.  YHC was still in oxygen deprivation mode.

Closed in CoT with prayer.

Gentlemen, thank you for posting this morning.  The encouragement and support you gave to a first time Q is much appreciated.  It was both a privilege and an honor to lead such a fine group of men.
