“What do you know Satchmo?”
-Donald “Pa” Bumgardner
Warm-up (No Measure)
-Ankle mobility is limiting squat depth
-Core stability (or lack of core activation) is causing the low back to round
-Shoulder and upper back mobility are causing the torso to lean too far forward
-Toes turning out too much = hip issue
FIT: Metcon (Time)
10 OHS 75/55
10 Front Squats 75/55

Scaling: decrease the load on the squats so you can complete them unbroken or in 2 sets. Decrease the gymnastic movements to a number that is challenging but obtainable.

Donald Neil Bumgardner, was my grandpa. I grew up without a father, but I couldn’t have asked for a better role model. He knew how do build and fix everything. He was an athlete, actually gaining a football scholarship. He painted, and built musical instruments. Was an amateur boxer, and he stressed “amateur.” He was a business owner. He retired from the Kaiser plant in Ravenswood, WV. He raised 4 children, was married over 50 years, and had a slew of grandchildren. He was all that, but to us he was “Pa.”
Its hard for me to talk about him and not get choked up. I still miss him dearly to this day, and there isn’t a single day that goes by that I do not think of him. He shaped who I am in many ways. He was a very special human being.
On October 26, 2001 Pa passed away after his second battle with lung cancer. Cancer took his beautiful white hair, strength and ultimately his life. Through it all though, HE NEVER COMPLAINED. But was always the first to ask me how I was doing. “What do you know Satchmo?”
Love Ya and Miss Ya Pa.
The young man.
The “Old Man”
