No running? No gear? No problem.

The challenge? A no running workout with no gear. The reason? To prove it could be done. The outcome? See below.


5 other PAX joined me this morning. The weather wasn’t looking good just 15 minutes earlier so kudos to these guys who braved the rain anyways. We were rewarded with a reprieve and only the lightest of mists. Leave the coupons and bricks in the car. I wish I’d taken a picture of Bread Bowl’s face when I told him “no gear”. It didn’t compute.

So there it is. It’s possible to do a no running, no gear workout. Gazelles like to run and it’s often a “break” to rest between the exercise portions of the workout. With today’s workout there was nowhere to hide. No gear to injure yourself with (if that’s a concern). Just reps on reps.

A note on the T-Clap walk. Anyone who thinks T-Claps was a break clearly hasn’t done T-Claps before. Hold your arms out to your side then lift them both above your head and clap. Repeato. Do that for 100 yards and tell me your arms aren’t burning.

Anyways, the gauntlet is down. The challenge is here. Drop the excuses. Diesel is looking for Qs in the coming months and you’re next.


CSAUP tomorrow. If you don’t know what this is then you’ve been under a coupon. Get hyped!
