Happy Birthday Adrian!
‘Friends are not concerned with what might be made of one another, but only with the enjoyment of one another; and the condition of this enjoyment is a ready acceptance of what is and the absence of any desire to change or to improve. A friend is not somebody one trusts to behave in a certain manner, who supplies certain wants, who has certain useful abilities, who possesses certain merely agreeable qualities, or who holds certain acceptable opinions; he is somebody who engages the imagination, who excites contemplation, who provokes interest, sympathy, delight and loyalty simply on account of the relationship entered into. One friend cannot replace another; there is all the difference in the world between the death of a friend and the retirement of one’s tailor from business. The relationship of friend to friend is dramatic, not utilitarian; the tie is one of familiarity, not usefulness; the disposition engaged is conservative, not “progressive.” And what is true of friendship is not less true of other experiences – of patriotism, for example, and of conversation – each of which demands a conservative disposition as a condition of its enjoyment.’

10 rounds for time of:
10 Shoulder-to-Overheads, 95/65 lbs
20 Air Squats

Coaching: This is so simple on paper…I’m sure it will be easy, right? The Shoulder-to-Overheads can be executed as Strict Presses, Push Presses, and any form of a Jerk, but we recommend at least utilizing Push Presses because they’re faster and a more efficient use of your time and muscular endurance. Cycle the reps quickly and post a killer score!
