some of you regular viewers of this blog will recognize Neo from the Sunday madness workouts we
also have Mustafa and I am happy to say Neo's dad! who has decided he is going to show these young

Nice simple hand walkouts as a warm up

just another facet of the THINGS evil nature is his choice in workout music! There is something truly sadistic and unnerving about being expected to perform 3 rounds of sparring at the end of a workout with a large muscular heavily tattooed man to the sound of Boy george's Karma chameleon!
To this day on particularly bad nights I find myself wrenched from my sleep sitting bolt up right in bed drenched in sweat heart racing screaming "RED GOLD AND GREEEEEEN"
Some scars never heal!
Still on the light stuff
Still warming up!
The Fun Begins
And we are off! Vests and all
Some shadow Boxing To Get Those Arms And Shoulders Working
