Your team's score will be the combined totals of the all pull-ups and all deadlifts. The final feat of strength, which will be added to your total will be a mystery event disclosed on Thursday. Lastly, the winning team will be awarded a $100 prize.

Seinfeld Quotes:
"Many Christmases ago, I went to buy a doll for my son. I reached for the last one they had, but so did another man. As I rained blows upon him, I realized there had to be another way."
"What happened to the doll?"
"It was destroyed. But out of that a new holiday was born... A Festivus for the rest of us!"
- Frank Costanza and Kramer, in "The Strike"

"At the Festivus dinner, you gather your family around and tell them all the ways they have disappointed you over the past year."
"And is there a tree?"
"No. Instead, there's a pole. Requires no decoration. I find tinsel distracting."
"Frank, this new holiday of yours is scratching me right where I itch."
- Frank and Kramer, in "The Strike"

Mark Sisson talks about a slosh tube - what is it? Momi`y Papa

Chris P. said...

slosh tubes are long pieces of PVC (between 6ft-10ft) that are halfway filled with water and capped at the ends. By holding it either at chest level or overhead, you work core strength and stability. You can also try walking with it which makes it harder.

we actually have one or two thanks to Sam G.
