We ain’t playin’ tiddlywinks and we ain’t reciting nursery rhymes - it’s called the #ironparadise for a reason and things get extremely intense. Threw around my 50lb chains ? for a drop set - I got lumped up and need stitches ???? Taste your blood, keep training and stitch up later - rules of the house. And I can confirm my blood tastes like Teremana, calluses and BlaMoan (black and samoan) Hot Sauce?????????? Have a productive week, my friends - keep it light and a lil’ fun, but get after it like a MF. #teamchaingang #blamoanhotsauce
