It’s official: Diesel is live and ready to pump you up. 8 PAX showed up ready to beast out, but first you gotta tell me your shirt size. That’s right, the official Diesel site has door prizes for the brave PAX who showed for our official launch and each lucky winner came away with a
wifebeater sleeveless t-shirt the official uniform of Diesel.
DiCCS given and a quick warm-up with SSHs, Imperial Walkers, and some small, medium, and large arm circles then on to:
Brutus and YHC (Your Humble
Correspondent Chastain) invested weeks days about 30 minutes last night coming up with an evil intricate plan focused on building up that upper body with the following pain stations:
- American Hammers
- Tire Flips
- Mike Tysons
- Arnold Presses
- Shoulder Presses
- Ground Flys
- Lateral Raises
- Moroccan Nightclubs with bricks
- Heels to Heaven
- Bear Crawl timer
Planning a gear workout is a bit different than your typical bootcamp style workout as you have to guesstimate how many people might show up so you have enough gear for everyone. With only 8 PAX on site we thought it’d be a good idea to take out a few stations to align with the number of PAX. Apparently we thought wrong. “Why would you do that?”, “I’ve never gotten to use the tire before!”, and “Don’t get rid of my very favorite exercise, the Mike Tyson!” were just a few of the shouts of anger/dismay. We’re so very proud of our little Diesel engines that could, so in they stayed, minus the Bear Crawl because we are benevolent Site Qs that both giveth and taketh away.
All in all we got about 5 rounds of stations in with 60 seconds of pain in each. All PAX arrived as buff and manly men, but left a little more buff, a little more stalwart, and a little more manly. And probably a lot more sore.
Much appreciation to these 8 men for helping make the launch a success. A special shout out and many T Claps to Carb Load and Twinkle Toes for constructing the awesome shovel flag (complete with diesel truck on top) that you see in the picture at the top. Amazing work, guys!
We’re still learning and open to suggestions. If you’ve got ideas on how to make Diesel even better then reach out to Brutus or myself (Chastain) and give your feedback.
