The fellas are really starting to feel the burn. Though, with a day full of Crossfit workouts, sparring and grappling, that's to be expected.
Throughout the day, the boys were worked out to the point of regurgitation, fed more downright immaculate meals and allowed to go to a nearby hotel for an hour-long romp in the pool. Instructor Lash came in early on to teach the boys some striking techniques and to take them through the ropes of sparring. By the end of it all, the boys were 100% for one of those aforementioned immaculate meals. All in all, despite the humidity and four cadets to have lost their lunch, it was a pretty splendid day of learning and physical combat.
Cadet Gerry just downright tickled to have achieved such a delightful rep score (terminology is unimportant) on this morning's Pre-Breakfast Crossfit workout

Lunch consisted of 8 slices of lunch meat apiece on a flour tortilla with the dazzling options of carrots or assorted pineapple/blueberries as a side
It doesn't look like much, but we had some leftovers
