Great advice for Ron to use to get ready for his upcoming bull ride. How to ride a bull by BV.

The trick to a successful bull ride (besides not having much brains in your head) is to sit way up on your hand (the one in the rope Ron) and hold on very tight with your legs – it's all legs. A strong grip helps, but is not needed as your hand is pretty much locked in the rope and will only come loose if your rope comes loose (by letting go of it or falling off).

So Dan, you better work in a few dozen adductor WODs for Ron before July. Ron, I would start by straddling the 24" box jump bench and keep squeezing until you can stand up and hold the bench between your legs. The other interesting thing about bull riding is that even if you make the 8 seconds, you still have to get off. So Ron, I suggest you hang by your feet from the tallest pull up bar in the gym and then let go with your feet and see if you can land on the floor feet first – like a cat. If you don't land on your feet, then Gabe, Dan and I will stomp on you as lay on the floor.

The reason I suggest this is that most likely you will be inverted when you exit the bull and you will need to practice "soft landings". The stomping part of the training is to get you to be aware of the ground and the bull at the same time and be able to move quickly when you hit the ground else you might get stomped.

Navy SEAL Chief (SOC) Adam Brown was killed in action in Komar Province, Afghanistan on March 16, 2010. In true "Adam Brown Style" he died a true hero, placing himself in the line of fire to protect other members of his unit. Adam's Special Ops Assault Team was assaulting an enemy compound, an operation Adam had performed many times. The U.S. Forces were engaging the enemy in a fire fight, when a portion of the U.S. soldiers were pinned down by very heavy fire from the enemy compound. In an effort to protect his men, Adam charged the enemy and was firing on the enemy from a better vantage point, drawing fire away from his pinned down comrades. His selfless action relieved the fire on his men, but it unfortunately resulted in Adam being struck by enemy fire. One other member of the American Team was wounded, but Adam's heroic action saved the other men. The enemy compound was captured and all enemy combatants were killed in the action.

Adam was a 12 year veteran of the United States Navy, with several tours of duty overseas. He is survived by his wife and two children.
