Yep, HERCULEAN. It’s a real word, and it was really what the workout was like on Saturday. Bill dreamt up this workout, and it was awesome! He split us up into teams of 6, and we did:

1 lap around the building of tire flips (400lb tire)
250 double unders
250 burpees
250 wall ball shots (20/14lb)
250 calories on the rower
sled drag 230kg’s from one end of the parking lot to the other

I was teamed up with Tommy Mo, Mark R, Beth, Giles, and Jamie. We were a great team! We huddled after we knew our team assignments and came up with a strategy. Tommy Mo and Mark would team up and flip that big ass tire around the building, I would attack double unders, Beth & Giles would rower/burpees, and Jamie would start dragging some weight. By the time the tire flips were over, we had a sizeable lead. We were the 2nd to last team to finish inside on the wall ball shots, but when I got outside I saw the most amazing thing; our sled drags were almost done! Mark and Tommy Mo had CRUSHED the sled drags, and we were the champs!

My forearms are PISSED after all those double unders though!
