“It’s The Principalities!”…… Big Worm

the Underground Shack always has and always will be about Synergy… The Underground Shack does not have an address, it does have a FOUNDATION though… Like the old movie quote from Friday “It’s the Principalities“… Big Worm.  So come one, Come all… those of you that fall into the Synergistic realm of the Underground Shack will be accepted, those of you that don’t will be rejected…until your ready.  Because when it all boils down to the nitty gritty, we all were born to serve a purpose, it just takes some longer then others to figure it out.  Peace.


9 Rounds

3- Body Weight Bench press
5- Dead Lift 315# for me, you go as heavy as you can
7- GHD situps
1- 200m sprint

after the 3rd round is complete, you get 90 seconds rest

after the 6th round is complete, you get 90 seconds rest

the goal is to go full bore for the 3 rounds before your rest! everything should be unbroken!

Sugar Information explains how sugar won’t make you fat

Cory Doctorow at 10:47 PM Wed

The good folks at Sugar Information want you to know the facts: Sugar is GOOD FOOD! After all, if sugar was bad for you, then all those kids who eat all that sugar would be getting obese! That’ll never happen.

If sugar is fattening, how come so many kids are thin?

Pursuit of Happiness…

4 Jun

My life is simple, my food is plain, and my quarters are uncluttered. In all things, I have sought clarity. I face the troubles and problems of life and death willingly. Virtue, integrity and courage are my priorities. I can be approached, but never pushed; befriended but never coerced; killed but never shamed.
– Yi Sunshin, Last letter to an old friend.

Back Squat 4 sets of 6
