ALWAYS FUN, ALWAYS DIFFERENT: The Houston Rodeo (more like the morning after) cut into our population in the Silverback Nation this morning, but hey “Work hard, play hard!”, and oh do we work hard.  Check out below.

At 9 am:

5 min:  Tag Team Jump Rope / Renegade Manmakers:  A1 Jumps rope while A2 Does Renegade Manmakers.  When A2 completes 3 they get to “take” the rope.  If A1 fails at jumping rope they must give the rope to A2.
